EML Brazil film series: Bus 174
Next up in the EML Brazil film series will be the 2002 documentary Bus 174. We hope you can join us this Friday evening, 5/5 at 6:30pm in Room 050 underneath the Lang Café. Here’s a synopsis of the film from Peter and attached is the poster.
Bus 174 — Valentine’s Day in Rio, an afternoon hijacking of a bus in a chic neighborhood, the crowd encircling the scene, a tense standoff with the police for hours, and the news media pointing their cameras at the bus. Using the raw media footage and select interviews, the documentary reveals hijacker Sandro do Nascimento’s back-story as a chronicle of a tragedy foretold as it played out live on Brazilian television.
