It’s been more than ten years since “City of God” made its international debut and became a smashing success. The feature film, based on a 1997 novel by Paulo Lins, tells the story of the rise of organized crime in the country and became an classic in the United States, where it earned four Oscar nominations.

Now there’s a new documentary out that details what the film’s actors have been up to for the past decade. “City of God - Ten Years Later” was recently one of 20 films selected for Premiere Brazil 2013, a traveling screening that begins in Rio de Janiero and includes at least one stop in New York City. The festival in Rio will take place September 26 to October 10; details on a U.S. screening haven’t been released yet.
