Style and substance tenaciously combine in this visually stunning and gripping exploration of the rise of organised crime in the titular Rio favela. Twenty-one years after it dazzled audiences on its original UK release, we’re delighted to present this searing adaptation of Paulo Lins’ novel back on the big screen. Loosely based on actual events, the film charts the history of organised crime in City of God and the suburb itself.
