Nominated for 4 Oscars and named one of Time Magazine's "ALL-TIME 100 Best Films," CITY OF GOD tells a powerful true story of crime and redemption. The streets of the world's most notorious slum, Rio de Janeiro's "City of God," are a place where combat photographers fear to tread, police rarely go and residents are lucky if they live to the age of 20. In the midst of the oppressive crime and violence, a frail and scared young boy will grow up to discover that he can view the harsh realities of his surroundings differently - with the eye of an artist. In the face of impossible odds, his brave ambition to become a professional photographer becomes a window into his world and ultimately his way out.

Special Features: Documentaries: 'News from a Private War'
