DFI Brazil Cinema Showcase: Bus 174
dfi brazilOn 12 June 2000, 21-year-old Sandro do Nascimento took several passengers hostage on a commuter bus in Rio de Janeiro. Manic and unpredictable, the young man waved his gun around and threatened to kill everyone on the bus if his demands were not met. In a disturbing twist of events, the entire episode was broadcast on live television, and all of Brazil witnessed the shocking ineptitude of Rio’s police in handling the terrifying situation. ‘Bus 174’ takes a harsh look at how Brazil’s state apparatus treats its disenfranchised people – especially its poor children – through interviews with street kids, police officers, sociologists and, heartbreakingly, do Nascimento’s family. The hard-hitting, moving documentary holds back no punches and is a heartfelt call for social equality. (Source: DFI)
