A sprawling, spellbinding chronicle of a Rio favela under the thumb of heavily armed drug gangs.

This sprawling, engrossing account of the rise of drug gangs in a Rio favela has the customary features of crime drama – psychotic hoods, power struggle and betrayal, violence – but also a milieu that had rarely been seen before. Meirelles and his collaborators devised a bravura narrative style, at the heart of which are mesmerising performances from real-life favela kids, a veritable choir of angels with dirty faces.
Director Fernando Meirelles & Kátia Lund
