From the team behind the Academy Award-nominated feature City of God, including directors Fernando Meirelles (The Constant Gardener) and Katia Lund comes the hit Brazilian television series City of Men, a comedy/drama about two teenage boys growing up in a dangerous Rio de Janeiro slum starring Darlan Cunha and Douglas Silva, featured in the motion picture that inspired this series.

The City is a shantytown located in one of the many mountains of Rio de Janeiro. The Men are two 13-year-old kids, Laranjinha and Acerola. The series brilliantly mixes humor and reality to explore life in the "favelas" and in particular the indomitable spirit of two best friends coming up in one of the most volatile communities in the world.
