News from a Personal War

Event: News from a Personal War
This films succinctly lays out the battle between Rio's police forces and the drug dealers who dominate the slums (favelas) that are dramatically perched on the hillsides overlooking the city's wealthiest neighborhoods. Joao Moreira Salles and Katia Lund go beyond the cops' and the dealers' points of views to get all sides of the story. They trace the roots of Rio's cocaine trade, exploring prisons conditions, and elaborating international politics that inform it all. The result is a spellbinding hour that's harder-hitting and more astonishing than any fiction film could be. (56 mins., video)
