CITY OF MEN – Preview Screening
Mon Jan 7 @ 7pm

Teenagers Ace (Douglas Silva) and Wallace (Darlan Cunha), both on the verge of their 18th birthdays, find themselves on opposite sides of a gang war in Paulo Morelli’s much anticipated follow-up to Fernando Meirelles’ award-winning “City of God.” The gripping soundtrack and compelling visual style evoke the intensity of growing up in a culture dictated by violence.
