The Afflicted Yard have produced a very interesting series of photos inspired by the film Manda Bala ( Send a Bullet), a documentary about kidnapping in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The epic film features some amazing interviews with a kidnap victim; an uptown guy who spends thousands of dollars on personal security including bulletproofing his Porsche; a couple of Renato-style cops; a stoned frog farmer; a dodgy politician; a professional criminal who cuts peoples ears off for a living and a doctor who constructs new ones from spare cartilage and sews them back on. All in all a very interesting and intruiging film although seemingly grim topic the film is actually quite funny so see it for yourself, its well worth it.
