Ten years after Rio de Janeiro’s slums burst into the world’s consciousness with the hit film ‘City of God’, very little has changed for the residents, as well as the actors who took part. Recruited from the favelas in which the original film’s story unfolds, the people who portrayed Dadinho, Bené, and Li’l Zé, actress Alice Braga and musician/actor Seu Jorge, find themselves back in front of the camera in this documentary revealing the mixed fortunes they’ve experienced since the film’s release in 2002.
