Verdicts from the Midnight Court
How can one survive in such a place as Cidade de Deus?
You can survive if you can take your distance. You take your distance when you will understand it so well that you can tell it.
And you will understand it so well that you can tell it if you are an artist.
This is the movie of Ze-Pequeno, the gangster, but also the movie of Buscape, the artist which looks at the City of God with the eyes of an artist and can tell it us through his camera.
