"You can't judge a people by the place where they reside, where they live and live together."
João Batista Santos
Resident of Cota neighborhood
“The Cota of a neighborhood” is a documentary video made for Futura Chanel´s Sala de Notícias program, which portrays the curious Cota neighborhood, built on the slopes of Serra do Mar between Sao Paulo and Cutabão.
By occupying areas of environmental protection, impasses were created: the neighborhood cannot be made official by the State of Sao Paulo, but it is established through public improvements. This program discusses the particularity of the altitude of neighborhoods that mix with the Atlantic Forest and the distant life of urban centers.
