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. In English and in Portuguese with subtitles. (132 mins)

“Critic’s Pick! Exhilarating. A heart-thumping political allegory that tips its hat to masters like John Carpenter.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
“A gloriously demented (and lightly psychedelic) Western.” – David Ehrlich, IndieWire
“A genre-busting entertainment that is at once a portrait of a community, a horror thriller and a timely piece of political filmmaking. ‘Bacurau’ is one of those movies like ‘Parasite’… where you’re never quite sure which way it’s heading.” – John Powers, NPR
