Salvador da Bahía, Brazil as the South American location for the series, based on the city’s beautiful waters, rich music scene, diverse population, and commitment to social justice. As the third largest city in Brazil, climate change will bring extreme challenges to Salvador – in addition to sea-level rise, the city will face overpopulation, failing infrastructure, and rainfall-induced landslides. 36.5 aims to connect the citizens of Salvador to these issues, while raising global awareness about Salvador’s climate change issues beyond Brazil.
To make 36.5 / Bay of All Saints happen, we partnered with the community of Solar do Unhão, Museu de Arte Moderna (MAM) and Adriana Campelo, Chief Resilience Officer for the City of Salvador / Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities. Collaborators included cinematographer Guilherme Burgos, local anthropologist/artist Clara Domingas, and Pretxs de Rua (Black Poets of the Street) who performed their poetic interventions to mark the passing of the hours.
