Brazilian composer Antonio Pinto was named "Discovery of the Year" at the 2003 World Soundtrack Awards/Flanders International Film Festival and was nominated for a Golden Globe award for the song "Despedida", which he co-wrote with Shakira. He made his domestic debut in Brazil in 1994, but first attracted international attention for his work on CENTRAL STATION in 1998. Four years later he composed the music for CITY OF GOD and was selected by Michael Mann to write the end credit for COLLATERAL. Pinto's credits also include LORD OF WAR and LOVE AND DEATH IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA. The 2002 film CITY OF GOD introduced the world to the horrors of the slums of Rio de Janeiro and followed the lives of several kids who grew up in the slums through the 60s, 70s and 80s. Utilizing the same setting and same actors, but set in the present day, CITY OF MEN became a television mini-series running from 2002-2005. The TV series transitions to the big screen with the new film CITY OF MEN. In CITY OF MEN, producer Fernando Meirelles (The Constant Gardner) returns to the Brazilian favelas of his Academy AwardT-nominated film, CITY OF GOD. Growing up in a culture dictated by violence and run by street gangs, teenagers Acerola (Douglas Silva) and Laranjinha (Darlan Cunha) have become close as brothers. With their eighteenth birthdays fast approaching, Laranjinha sets out to find the father he never met, while Acerola struggles to raise his own young son. But when they suddenly find themselves on opposite sides of a gang war, the lifelong friends are forced to confront a shocking secret from their shared past.
