City of God

November 4, 2014

Brazil | 2002 | Film: 130 minutes | Discussion: 30 minutes | Fernando Meirelles, Kátia Lund

In 2002 City of God provided a hyper-stylized view into the favela culture of Rio de Janeiro. The kinetic film still packs an emotional punch but the violence in the favelas became topical again as Brazil controversially attempted to 'clean up' it's slums for the World Cup. Seattle University Professor Gary Perry will join us for a post-screening discussion, focusing on not just the aftermath of Brazil's decision but also how any city can begin to effectively turn around the violence within a community in a more positive way.
