54 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A tale of how crime affects the poor population of Rio de Janeiro. Though the narrative skips around in time, the main focus is on Cabeleira who formed a gang called the Tender Trio. He and his best friend, Bene, become crime lords over the course of a decade. When Bene is killed before he can retire, Little Ze attempts to take out his arch enemy, Sando Cenoura. But Sando and a young gangster named Manu form an alliance and begin a gang war with Little Ze. Amateur photographer Buscape, a good-natured boy who comically learns that he's not cut out to be a hoodlum, takes pictures of the brutal crime war, making their story famous

Built in the 1960s, Cidade de Deus (City of God) is a sprawling housing project built to keep the poor as far as possible from Rio's glamorous beaches and resorts. By the 1980s, it has degenerated into a war zone so dangerous that visitors from outside risk being shot to death on sight, a poisonous stew of poverty, drugs, and crime. "If you run away, they get you, and if you stay, they get you, too," says Rocket, who wants to be a photographer. Rocket's brother, friends, and neighbors begin with truck stick-ups, which lead to brothel hold-ups that lead to murder that leads to coke dealing that leads to street brawls with armies of gun-toting 11-year-olds. Soon a full-scale gang war rages in the City of God--understandably not covered by wary Rio photojournalists--but just the opportunity Rocket needs to make his move, get a job at a newspaper, and get out

2 editions published in 2005 in Portuguese and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cafundó is a film which blends fact with fiction in the life of João de Camargo, a former black slave (1858-1942, Sorocaba, Brazil) who, in his old age, works miracles and devotes himself to assisting others in order to attain his freedom. João de Camargo represents the genesis of religious and cultural syncretism in Brazil."--Www.imdb.com
Proibido proibir ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in Portuguese and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Proibido Proibir is about what it means to be a young college student in a big Brazilian city like Rio de Janeiro in the 2000s and have your dreams and hopes downsized by the stark reality. The three protagonists are the medical resident Paulo (sleepy-eyed Caio Blat), who numbs his sensitivity by being cynical and taking drugs and whose motto is "Proibido Proibir" ("It's Forbidden to Forbid", the motto of the French 1968 student riots and title of Caetano Veloso's seminal song); his roommate and best friend León (Alexandre Rodrigues, who played Buscapé/Rocket in "City of God"), a black Social Sciences student who learns -- (the hard way) -- that being middle-class and educated won't prevent him from receiving some of the usual "treatment" reserved for poor blacks; and León's girlfriend Letícia (the lovely, fresh-faced Maria Flor), an architecture student struggling to keep her sense of ethics and aesthetics from being crushed by the ugliness (literal and metaphoric) around her."--www.imdb.com
