City of God - 360 Cinematography

by Philana Payton

Rocket (Alexandre Rodrigues) ends up in the middle of a war zone when Li'l Ze (Leandro Firmino) asks him to take a picture of his gang.

The camera whirls 360 degrees around Rocket as he is caught between two warring groups. His camera is used symbolically as he is asked to "shoot" a photo in the moment he is caught between law and lawlessness.
