A few years from now… Bacurau, a small village in the Brazilian sertão, mourns the loss of its matriarch, Carmelita, who lived to be 94. Days later, its inhabitants (among them Sônia Braga) notice that their village has literally vanished from online maps and a UFO-shaped drone is seen flying overhead. There are forces that want to expel them from their homes, and soon, in a genre-bending twist, a band of armed mercenaries led by Udo Kier arrive in town picking off the inhabitants one by one. A fierce confrontation takes place when the townspeople turn the tables on the villainous outsiders, banding together by any means necessary to protect and maintain their remote community. The mercenaries just may have met their match in the fed-up, resourceful denizens of little Bacurau.
Brazil | France, 2019, 131 minutes, Not Rated, In English and Portuguese with English subtitles, Directed by Kleber Medonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles

“It crams elements of the western, John Carpenter-y beats, mordant wit and peppery political commentary into one hugely entertaining modern exploitation flick.”– Philip De Semlyen, TIME OUT
“Bacurau is wildly creative, and it’s hilarious.”– Natalia Keogan, PASTE MAGAZINE
“The light touches of science fiction evoke present-day depravities, and the vision of local unity offers a thrillingly imaginative playbook for resistance.”– Richard Brody, NEW YORKER
“An exhilarating fusion of high and low…a heart-thumping political allegory.”– Manohla Dargis, THE NEW YORK TIMES
“Gloriously demented…a wonderful and delirious Brazilian western.”– David Ehrlich, INDIEWIRE
