City Of God

  • Whirled Cinema 259-260 Hardess Street London, England, SE24 United Kingdom (map)

City of God is a 2002 Brazilian crime drama directed by Fernando Meirelles and co-directed by Kátia Lund. It depicts the growth of organized crime in the Cidade de Deus suburb of Rio de Janeiro, between the end of the 1960s and the beginning of the 1980s, with the closure of the film depicting the war between the drug dealer Li'l Zé and vigilante-turned-criminal Knockout Ned. The tagline is "If you run, the beast catches you; if you stay, the beast eats you", a proverb analogous to the English "Damned if you do, damned if you don't".

With the 2016 Olympics beginning this month come and watch this film on the big screen to see a gritty side of one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
