Spring Film Series, Part 5 of 6: City of Men

7:00 PM  - 10:00 PM
Wednesday Mar 24, 2010
John B. Davis Lecture Hall, Ruth Stricker Dayton Campus Center

Join us for the second Alumni Film Series named "Hidden Gems and Surprises" happening 7 p.m. on Wednesdays, Feb. 24-March 31. A Brazilian gang story from the same people who brought us the intense and frightening City of God, City of Men follows the friendship of Ace and Wallace, 18-year-olds living amid the squalor and danger of a Rio de Janeiro favela, keeping their jobs, staying out of the drug wars and, in the case of Ace, trying to raise his baby son. Energetic and occasionally inspired, the film deepens the case that there's a vital new essence to Brazilian cinema. Hidden Gems participants will see four films on campus, discuss the Oscars, and venture out to a local theater together to view a new release. Sign up to see just this film for $5, or all four on-campus screenings for $20. Email Stephen Sporer for more information.
