Favela also translated into ‘slums’ is a low-income town in Brazils capital, Rio de Janeiro. “Beyond the Map” is an interactive online text that showcases the positive outlook of being a resident of the Favelas and with technology of today, the creators of ‘Beyond of the Map’ are able to give the audience an authentic perspective on what life is like living in the Favelas. The residents of Favelas are commonly perceived to be criminals because of their living and financial situation, nonetheless ‘Beyond the Map’ depicts day-to-day activities that the community partakes in, in order to divert themselves from trouble and their not so extravagant life that is their reality.
