Sunday 13th December, 7:30 p.m. <goog_1260271729416>
Film: Bus 174 <http://www.starandshadow.org.uk/on/film/515>

Directed by José Padilha & Felipe Lacerda (2002). Certificate BBFC 15.
Length: 112mins. Language: Portuguese. Format: 35mm.

In the summer of 2000, in Rio de Janeiro, a 21-year-old hijacked a commuter
bus and held its passengers hostage. The police were flummoxed as local TV
crews arrived en masse to cover the headline-grabbing events as they
unfolded. BUS 174 balances this potentially sensationalistic material with
accounts by the police, the victims, the witnesses and friends and family of
the hijacker.
