Captain Nascimento, the head of the Special Police Operations Battalion in Rio de Janeiro, leads an effort to put down an uprising in a maximum-security prison. The operation ends in deadly violence and he loses his job, but the people of Rio consider him a hero, and he’s given a powerful government post. Nascimento throws everything he’s got at the city’s druglords, and at first he’s successful, driving them out of the city’s slums, but soon he finds that dirty cops aligned with the Governor have taken advantage of the new power vacuum to set up a ruthless system of extortion. Director José Padilha delivers a gritty realism rooted in his background in documentary filmmaking: his 2002 debut, Bus 174, was a huge success, winning awards worldwide. Featuring an iconic, bravura performance by Wagner Moura as Nascimento, this sequel to the 2007 hit delivers the heart-pounding adrenalin rush of the best action films—but it’s equally committed to exposing the complex realities of the world it portrays. The highest-grossing film of all time in Brazil.

Director Jose Padilha is expected to attend both screenings.
