Rio 2016 Official Film | Days of Truce

Breno Silveira and his four co-directors captured the zest and emotion of the Summer Olympics in this comprehensive documentary. Starting with a brilliant montage of old buildings and highways being destroyed to make way for Olympic venues, and not sidestepping Brazil's economic and political woes, the film focuses on the people of Rio as well as world stars like Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps. There's a strong sense of dozens of events unfolding simultaneously, and recognition of several nations winning gold at the Olympics for the first time. Silveira also highlights the Refugee Olympic team and its significance.
