2h 11m (subtitles)

Cannes Jury Prize winner in 2019; in Bacurau, Kebler Mendonça Filho, Brazilian auteur, co-directing with his producer, Juliano Dornelles has changed from his usual humanistic style in this hallucinatory Brazilian revenge western set in the near future deep in the north-eastern Sertão – the Brazilian outback.  ‘The film mashes up many themes and influences but is chiefly a scream of satirical defiance against the then new far right President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro.’  Peter Bradshaw
