About the Film

The people of a small town in the Brazilian sertão gather to mourn the loss of its matriarch, Carmelita, who lived to be 94. Days later, its inhabitants notice some strange things: their town and community are disappearing from most maps… Set a few years into the future, Bacurau is a portrait of the Brazilian community as it struggles to defend itself from the dangers of uncontrolled modernization. The film premiered at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival, where it was the joint winner of the Jury Prize.
