Bacurau – a settlement in rural Brazil – is shaken by its matriarch’s death. But something strange is happening, the water supply has been cut off, and the village has disappeared from satellite maps completely. Under threat from an unknown enemy, Bacurau braces itself for a brutal fight for survival.
Inspired by American westerns and 1960’s Brazilian cinema – and nominated for last year’s Palme d’Or at Cannes – Bacurau is a wildly entertaining and thrilling piece of genre-bending cinema.
