Weekend Views Heres our guide to making your weekend schedule more fun

City of God

Keeping in mind the Olympic theme of the weekend, here's a look at the city of Rio De Janeiro.
City of God is a 2002 classic which chronicles the life of two boys growing up in a violent neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro. They take different paths: one becomes a photographer, the other a drug dealer. The story is brilliant, but the cinematography is beyond superlative. Watch out for the opening sequence which juxtaposes a man sharpening his knife and a gang chasing a man side by side.

The film is playing at the Matterden CFC: Mumbai on 19 to 25 August 2016.

A Trick of the Light

Directed by the Win Wenders, Die Gebrüder Skladanowsky, made with students of the Munich Film Academy is a combination of docudrama, fictional reenactment, and experimental photography to show the birth of cinema in Berlin took place.
