The Festival Agency are proud to announce the re-release of Fernando Meirelles’ iconic masterpiece City of God in UK cinemas now. To celebrate we are giving away a bundle of City of God goodies including a limited edition City of God skateboard, t-shirt and poster to a lucky winner!

 Twenty-one years after dazzling audiences on its original release, this visually stunning and gripping story of life on the mean streets of Rio, returns to the big screen for an unforgettable cinematic experience.

A searing adaptation of Paulo Lins’ novel, based on real events, CITY OF GOD weaves together the compelling stories of a group of kids growing up in the poverty-stricken favelas of Rio from the 1960s to the 80s.  The narrator Rocket (Alexandre Rodrigues), tries to avoid being drawn in to the usual spiral of violence and crime to become a photographer and win over the beautiful Angélica (Alicia Braga), whilst gun-toting L’il Zé (Leandro Firmino) with charismatic best friend Bené (Phellipe Haagensen) becomes the brutal crime boss of the city, wiping out rival gangs without remorse.  When crack shot Knockout Ned (singer/actor Seu Jorge) is dragged into the fray, the vicious turf war between the last two remaining gangs reaches boiling point.

To celebrate the UK and international re-release of the film in cinemas, a limited-edition City of God Capsule skate collection has been created, a unique collaboration between renowned skate brand Clown Skateboards and London-based creative agency AllCity in partnership with In Action for Charitable Community Initiatives in Brazil.  Available HERE and at select skate stores.
