Bus 174 is documentary about a hostage situation on a bus in Rio de Janeiro back in 2000. More broadly though, it is an illuminating discussion about  culture, society, wealth and poverty in Brazil. In examining the invisible and mistreated impoverished youth population in Brazil Bus174 forces us to consider our own society and our role in perpetuating similar forms of oppressive invsibility. Its an absolutely well done documentary that will have any viewer sitting on the edge of their seat in anticipation, reconsidering preconceived notions of villians and heroes and wanting to know more. Thanks Miriam for the heads up!
