City of God, DVD



Using street kids straight from the Cidade de Deus slum outside Rio de Janeiro, Fernando Meirelles' film is based on actual events that happened in the slum.

The story, revealed by Buscape - a street kid who decides to become a photojournalist when he discovers he is not cut out to become a villain - revolves around the shadowy world of drugs and the violence which increases with each generation.

Li'l Ze has grown up to become a natural-born-killer and attempt to take over the drugs trade of the city.

However, this sparks a turf war which is photographed by Buscape, making the war famous.
