City of Men Poster and Trailer

In “City of Men”, producer Fernando Meirelles (“The Constant Gardner”) returns to the Brazilian favelas of his Academy Award-nominated film, “City of God”. Growing up in a culture dictated by violence and run by street gangs, teenagers Acerola (Douglas Silva) and Laranjinha (Darlan Cunha) have become close as brothers. With their eighteenth birthdays fast approaching, Laranjinha sets out to find the father he never met, while Acerola struggles to raise his own young son. But when they suddenly find themselves on opposite sides of a gang war, the lifelong friends are forced to confront a shocking secret from their shared past.
