This moving account of the palafitas, the last of the notorious water slums in the Bay of All Saints in Bahia, Brazil, illuminates the struggle between a government aggressively trying to reclaim the bay in the name of ecological restoration and the hundreds of families forced to evacuate in the process. Filmed among the vast network of shacks built on stilts above a rising tide of garbage and scheduled for demolition, Bay of All Saints turns the plight of one community into a provocative contemplation on poverty, environmental justice, and the notion of home.

Co-presented by Cinema Tropical
