City of God (Cidade de Deus): dir Fernando Meirelles (2002)
11 October @ 9.30 pm - 11.30 pm
Don’t miss this sweeping tale of crime among the poor of Rio de Janeiro and the individuals caught up in brutal gang wars over a ten year period. Based on a true story, it’s powerful, moving, raw, and authentic. City of God was screened at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival and voted movie of the year by Empire magazine in 2003.
In Portuguese with English subtitles; screens again on 13 and 17 October. Shows in the Alternativo Latino season, a one-week celebration of Latin American cinema running 11-17 October at Cinema Akil.
