‘Lowrider Brasil’ Explores the Country’s Burgeoning Lowrider Culture
Whippin’ through the streets of Sao Paulo and Rio.
Lowrider Brasil is a short documentary by filmmaker Stéphane Benini that offers an intimate look into the lives and clubs behind Brazil’s burgeoning lowrider culture. Nominated as part of the official selection of the London Motor Festival 2016 “Best Documentary Film” category, the visual takes to the streets of Sao Paulo and Rio to tell the stories of Brazillian lowrider clubs “Car Club Por Vida,” “Vida Bandida CC” and “Otra Vida.” In between glistening shots of some of the rarest whips in action, the film features interviews with club members and presidents, who talk about what lowrider culture means to them and how it fares within Brazil’s complex social-political fabric.
