    • Synopsis
    • The story of Rio de Janeiro over 3 decades told through the radical eyes of the city’s most wanted surf anti-hero.
      Dadá Figueiredo is the ultimate Brazilian surf anti-hero. RADICAL RIO tells the personal journey of a kid who swapped the ghetto streets for Rio’s beautiful beaches in the late 70s to become the country’s best known surfer.
      Dadá is a true Carioca (a man from Rio), his story mirrors the story of Rio itself as successive waves of drugs, violence and religion struck the city. He lived Brazil’s paradise city through good times and bad, surviving cocaine addiction, homelessness and a near fatal stabbing. Now he, like Rio,
      is trying to redeem and reinvent himself – this is their story
