Bacurau, Glasgow Film Festival 2020


3 and 5 March, 2020

The screening on 3 March will be followed by a Q&A with co-directors Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles.

A bracing mash-up of genres and political comment, Bacurau offers stinging insights into the state of modern Brazil and the legacy of colonialism. Set in the near future, it follows Teresa (Bárbara Colen) as she returns home to attend her mother’s funeral. Bacurau is a forsaken backwater in the scrublands, deprived of basic amenities and state support. Its citizens have been sold as prey for a safari of foreign hunters. As the deranged killers close in, the villagers prepare to fight back using a psychotropic drug as their secret weapon. A fiery original with a nod to classic westerns.
