The movie City of God is a great film that’s directed by Fernando Meirelles and co-directed by Kátia Lund, and it’s based on a true story about honest urban issues in the developing nation of Brazil. This movie perfectly portrays the lack of social and economic mobility in the community and this leads to many problems, like urban slums and a horrible, dirty and run down physical environments. This then causes Urban crime and youth gang activity which causes kids to drop out of school and have no education. In the movie we see the lack of education and the effect it has on the community and the character’s own lives. With these slums and lack of government interference it leads to a constant cycle of poverty and run down and ruined communities
