Rio & Cine: City of God – Part 2

The plot continues the story of the growth of organized crime in the City of God, a favela located in Rio de Janeiro, which began to take shape in the 1960s.

City of God is an adaptation of the eponymous 1997 book written by Paulo Lins. It received four Oscar nominations in 2004 (Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Editing, and Best Cinematography). At the Grande Prêmio do Cinema Brasileiro, it won awards for Best Film, Best Director (Fernando Meirelles), Best Adapted Screenplay (Bráulio Mantovani), Best Cinematography (César Charlone), Best Sound (Guilherme Ayrosa, Paulo Ricardo Nunes, Alessandro Laroca, Alejandro Quevedo, Carlos Honc, Roland Thai, Rudy Pi, and Adam Sawelson), and Best Editing (Daniel Rezende).

In the second part of the presentation, we’ll have more time to discuss the film and its impact on Rio de Janeiro’s culture.
