The people captured in “Living Periferia” live with it every day of their lives. The violence, the drugs, the weapons, the lost bullets which take dozens of lives every year… The fights, the battles with the police. Some barely escape. Others fall in the street law and to save them from oblivion their friends and family draw enormous pictures of them on the walls of the shantytown. It’s a posthumous tribute to their courage, their way to remember them as local heroes.
