Sky Pirates in Rio

Directed by


In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, thousands of people secretly make giant hot air balloons out of paper in their garages. With the magical alchemy of paper, air and fire, these “pirate balloons” decoratively possess the city’s skies. However, it has recently become a criminal offence and those who make montgolfiers are liable to prison. This does not deter the “baloeiros”, balloon makers, and many continue to let their inordinate dreams drift above the world’s most beautiful bay.
