Bus 174 (Ônibus 174) DVD 2002 Brazilian Portuguese film directed by Felipe Lacerda and José Padilha.  Documentary depicts what happened in Rio de Janeiro on June 12th 2000, when bus 174 was taken by an armed young man.  A bus full of passengers was kidnapped in Rio de Janeiro in broad daylight. The kidnapper, Sandro do Nascimento, terrorized his victims and when he finally agreed to surrender and the episode was close to an end, a policeman tried to shoot him, killing one of the hostages instead, a young woman. The whole episode was broadcast live, causing revolt among the population. The documentary is about the incident, with interviews, focusing on Sandro do Nascimento, his childhood, and how unavoidably he was doomed to become a bandit. Transmitted live on all Brazilian TV networks, this shocking and tragic-ending event became one of violence's most shocking portraits, and one of the scariest examples of police incompetence and abuse in recent years. Stars Yvonne Bezerra de Mello as herself, Sandro do Nascimento as himself (archive footage), Rodrigo Pimentel as himself and Luiz Eduardo Soares as himself. Rated R for language, violent images and some drug material.
