Strange things are happening in Bacurau, a small village in rural Brazil. Broken coffins litter the roads, the water supply has been cut off, the mobile phone signal has dropped and the village has completely disappeared from satellite maps. To say more about this fantastic genre-bending thriller risks spoiling the impact of Filho and Dornelles’ wild ride and the rich layers beneath it.
Winner of the Jury Prize and nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes 2019

★★★★ “Utterly distinctive film-making, executed with ruthless clarity and force” - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
