Rio—Like the Locals

Posted on 4/5/2016 2:27:00 PM in What We're Watching

A note from our curator, independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

In this episode of CNN Go, host Bruno Nadkarni takes us on a tour of his favorite spots in Rio de Janeiro. We get a glimpse into the workings of his family’s local guest house and jazz club, before heading up to pedra bonita, a lesser known mountain accessible by a short hike, which offers a breathtaking bird’s-eye view of the city and is a popular take-off spot for hang gliders. We stop off at a local bar in the Lapa neighborhood of Rio for a quick glass of cachaça, Brazil’s popular drink made from distilled sugar cane juice, before it’s time to hit the town!
