THURSDAY NIGHT MOVIE AT LHOOQ BOOKS

(Thursday 06/27/19) just after sunset 🌅 Join us while we screen the Contemporary, Art House Crime Drama City of God, directed by Fernando Meirelles. City Of God is based on a true story that takes place in the '60s where in the slums of Rio de Janeiro, two boys growing up in the neighborhood take on different paths in life. The story is told through the eyes of Rocket, a poor young fisherman's son who dreams of becoming a photographer one day. His story narrates the violence and corruption surrounding the city and the rise and fall of one of the city's most notorious bosses, Li'l Ze. As war wages on the streets, Rocket's only way out of this violent life is to expose its brutality to the world through his photography. Along the way the lives of others are put into perspective as their stories intersect with the events that take place.
