This documentary looks at a young man who took a bus full of people hostage in Rio de Janeiro in 2000. The entire incident was broadcast on live TV, becoming a shocking portrait of violence and police incompetence. The film uses footage from that day and new material.
If City Of God cracked the skin, Bus 174 digs deep into the wound. An astounding, depressing triumph.
