Great Chicken Scenes #3: ‘City of God’ (2002)

What with all the excitement over Sunday’s discovery of the chickens’ psychic powers, I completely forgot to upload the regular weekly Great Chicken Scene.  But better late than never, as this is the show-stopping chase that opens Fernando Meirelles and Kátia Lund’s Brazilian film City of God (2002), in which a chicken clearly destined for the pot manages to break free, scurrying along the back streets of a Rio favela with an armed gang in hot pursuit.  Subtitles have been deliberately disabled in order to better convey things from the chicken’s point of view.

(Hat tip to Tim Nelson and Stephen Leslie for their near-simultaneous suggestion)
