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

"Aclamada en todo el mundo, esta historia verdadera de crimen y redención ha ganado numerosos premios, incluyendo el Premio del Público del American Film Institute y el Visions Award en el Festival de Cine de Toronto. Las calles del barrio más bajo del mundo, "Ciudad de Dios" en Río de Janeiro, es un lugar al que combatientes fotógrafos temen pisar, al que la policia rara vez visita y en el que los residentes son afortunados si llegan a los 20 años. En medio del crimen y la violencia, un débil y temeroso chico crecerá para descubrir que puede ver la dura realidad de su alrededor con una mirada diferente: la mirada del artista. Aún teniendo todo en contra, su valiente ambición de convertirse en fotógrafo profesional no sólo es una ventana a través de la cual ve su mundo, sino es también su salvación."--Envase
