About the Event

City of God – Special Screening with Complimentary Tequila Sunrise Cocktail and introduction

The film evening for internationals in Tilburg! Organized by Cinecitta and International Center. View English spoken films or international films with English subtitles on the big screen and enjoy an evening full program. This edition is hosted during Cinecitta's birthday, so you can expect something extra! 

More than film

Every edition, we organize something extra before or after the film. This way, you can connect with the international community and experience an evening filled with more than just film. You can expect extra activities such as live music, professional introductions, lectures, and more! This edition, Alexander Zwart, a journalist from Filmkrant, will provide an introduction to the film, featuring many visual clips. Additionally, each attendee will receive a refreshing Tequila Sunrise cocktail.

About the film

Experience life in a violent Rio de Janeiro favela through the eyes of a young photographer in this modern Brazilian classic that bursts with passion, color, and visual magic. Newly digitally remastered, City of God (Cidade de Deus) returns to the big screen at Cinecitta for a one-time special showing.

Returning to cinemas 20 years after its Dutch premiere in a new digital remaster, City of God follows Buscapé, a poor, sensitive young black man growing up in one of Rio de Janeiro's most violent favelas. Fearing the inevitable pull of a life of crime, Buscapé is saved by his talent as a photographer, allowing him to pursue a career. Through his camera lens, he captures the day-to-day life of his community, where violence seems endless.

Directed by Fernando Meirelles and Kátia Lund, this essential arthouse staple of the 2000s crackles with passion, violence, color, and visual wizardry. The film, shot using a combination of 16mm, 35mm, and digital formats, was Brazil’s submission to the Oscars and primarily features amateur actors who bring the relentless violence and restless energy of the favela to life.

Films accessible to all

This event is organized by International Center Tilburg in collaboration with Cinecitta. Both want to provide cinema to internationals living in Tilburg. Therefore, the entire program will be in English and films will have English subtitles (or will be English spoken). Cinecitta is a local arthouse cinema that also organizes an International Film Festival every year.
