Travel Brazil – The Carioca Way (Film Scholarship Winners 2012)

As winners of the 2012 World Nomads Travel Film Scholarship, Shriya Pilgaonkar (Presenter) and I (Eeshit Narain, Cameraman) jetset to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to film the Carnaval celebrations and to immerse ourselves in Brazilian culture.

Locals of Rio de Janeiro proudly call themselves ‘Cariocas’. For them, living in Rio is more than just having a great passion for Carnaval. While in town, we set out to discover what the Carioca spirit is all about and learn what it really means to be a Rio local.
