November 4

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.

Our post-screening discussion will focus 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.
