Bus 174

Event: Bus 174
Jose Padilha created one of the most widely distributed and acclaimed Brazilian documentaries. The film gives a minutely detailed account of a Rio bus holdup by a young armed man. The triangulated negotiations between the hijacker, the hostages, and the police were broadcast live on Brazilian TV networks and the story became an emblematic case of both urban crime and police incompetence and abuse. Padilha's unfolding of the narrative has all the compelling tension of a remarkable true crime story but he also tells a larger story of the hijacker's childhood and how it reveals some of the deppest tensions behind law and order in Rio. (122 mins., 35mm)
