  Katia Lund Friday 20 February 2004  
When a film you're involved in gets nominated for an Oscar, that's normally a cause for celebration. But Katia Lund has mixed feelings.

She co-directed City of God, a film set in the slums of Rio de Janeiro. The story of street children from one favela has been widely acclaimed and was nominated for a best director Oscar. But the name on it is Fernando Mereilles. Katia Lund, the film's co-director wasn't nominated.

She joins Martha to explain why her major contribution has not been acknowledged by the Academy.
