Fusion Live

FUSION LIVE is an antidote for what you usually get on primetime. Hosts Pedro Andrade, Mariana Atencio and Yannis Pappas lead an energetic, edgy, funny hour filled with compelling stories that will keep you entertained and informed. It is filled with engaging stories, live musical performances and interviews with influencers. It’s a free-flowing conversation that offers the kind of humor and satire that people love to share.

In 2011 the Brazilian government decided to implement a movement called “pacification” in order to clean up the slums of Rio before the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics.

Many residents questioned the efficiency of this effort since most favelas revolve around drug cartels and illegal activities. Even though some of these under privileged communities still struggle with these radical changes, one of them – Vidigal – has been able to truly stand out and become an example for slums around the world.

Pedro Andrade went inside Vidigal to see first hand the shifts in the lives of the locals.
