Pedro Pinho
Bairro do Rego

In this workshop filmmaker Pedro Pinho invites a group of children aged 6 to 12 from Lisbon’s Bairro do Rego to tell the story of the Passa Sabi Association in an animated film. The main theme of this collective work will be the variety of spaces occupied throughout the years by the Passa Sabi Association — a course that has led to the autonomous construction of a gymnasium. This story tells us of the association’s origins, of the meaning of its name (which is to be/pass well), and of its role within Bairro do Rego, where it develops activities and projects, promoting cooperation between residents in initiatives that aim to create better quality of life inside the neighbourhood.
