SYNOPSIS

The matriarch of the eponymous town in Northeastern Brazil passes on, marking what will be the first in a series of tragedies for this community. As horrors mount and efforts to literally wipe Bacurau off the map intensify, townsfolk of all standing⁠—exiles, cosmopoles, vagabonds—return to join forces in what will be a captivating showdown between them and their oppressors.

A Brazilian neo-western, Bacurau was awarded the Jury Prize at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. Its critique on the country’s political landscape captures the spirit of tumult that accompanies life on the margins. At its heart, Bacurau is an urgent exhortation to the need for solidarity against whatever form taken on by external aggressors.

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR

Bacurau (2019) marks Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles’ first co-directorial venture. Brazilian critic-turned-director Mendonça is known for his urban class study Neighboring Sounds (2012) and politically-charged Aquarius (2016), both of which longtime collaborator Dornelles had worked on as production designer.
