After the death of her grandmother, Teresa comes home to her matriarchal village in a near-future Brazil to find a succession of sinister events that mobilizes all of its residents.
Language: Portugese/English, English subtitles
After the death of her grandmother Carmelita, granddaughter Teresa returns for the funeral to the native village of Bacurau in the remote dry north east of Brazil. The locals form a close and colorful community. When they find out that their hometown has disappeared from all navigation systems and the telephone connections no longer work, a lot of unrest arises. It turns out to be the prelude of strange events that are meant to stay under the radar. The villagers pull out all the stops to defend their place, although it is not immediately clear who or what is threatening them. Bacurau is a special mix of western, horror and low-budget science fiction that takes place in the near future.
Bacurau is a fierce indictment of the current political situation in Brazil and at the same time the film is a reflection on the history of the country, marked by colonization.
This film will be introduced by Brendan Vos, former assistant programmer at Eindhoven’s arthouse cinema. He currently teaches film and television as a freelancer and works on film productions when time allows.
“Ultraviolant freakout in Brazil’s outback.” (4-star rating)
“Formally thrilling and narratively daring, Bacurau draws on modern Brazilian sociopolitical concerns to deliver a hard-hitting, genre-blurring drama.”
