This film showing is the third installment of the Tracing the Unexplored: Brazil's Multicultural Society series. Taking place of the course of over two decades, City of God tells the story of a shanty town favela of Rio de Janeiro from the viewpoint of a boy named Rocket who grows up there and demonstrates the desperation and violence inherent in the slums. Based on a true story, the movie depicts drug abuse, violent crime, and a boy's struggle to free himself from the slum's grasp.
