Ônibus 174 / Bus 174

Director: José Padilha / Felipe Lacerda
Genre: Documentary
Language: Portuguese (w/ english subs)
Year Of Release: 2002

On June 12th, 2000, a bus full of passengers was kidnapped in Rio de Janeiro in broad daylight. The kidnapper, Sandro do Nascimento, terrorized his victims and when he finally agreed to surrender and the episode was close to an end, a policeman tried to shoot him, killing one of the hostages instead, a young woman. The whole episode was broadcast live, causing revolt among the population. The documentary is about the incident, with interviews, focusing on Sandro do Nascimento, his childhood, and how unavoidably he was doomed to become a bandit.

A strong look into the unforging life of street kids in Rio de Janeiro and everything related to extremely powerful documentary!

Hi, I just wanted to say how much I like your blog. Sometimes it is bothering to get into a place where bloggers only got one thing to say, so their posts are almost a continuous and unstoppable deja vu! It's good to have variety and this is pretty much what brings me here over and over again.
