Directed by Bruno Barreto, an Oscar nominee for 1998’s Four Days in September, and written by Braulio Mantovani, an Oscar nominee for Best Adapted Screenplay for City of God, Brazil’s 2008 submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award screens January 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the Aero Theatre. Based on a true story and featuring young actors plucked from theater groups in and around the slums of Rio de Janeiro, Last Stop 174 tells the tragic saga of a boy in search of a family and a mother in search of her son, all against a backdrop where lies, degradation, corruption and violence are the norm, and justice is an unreal concept.
The Aero Theatre
is located at 1328 Montana Avenue in Santa Monica
