Intrigue · Drama · VOSE (Brazilian with subtitles in Spanish). 131 minutes.
Synopsis: "Bacurau", which moves between magical realism, Brazilian auteur cinema, the dystopian and bloody western, realistic science fiction and irony grafted social drama, is one of the most daring and original bets of a cinema effervescent and committed Brazilian. This wild allegory of a resistant people, starring Sônia Braga (soul of the acclaimed "Aquarius", by the same director) preserves the crude political imprint of Glauber Rocha's cinema, but with the most countercultural touch of fantastic neo-western and John Carpenter terror.
