In the tranquil, tightly knit backcountry village of Bacurau, in a not-too-distant future Brazil, something strange is stirring. The town has disappeared from the virtual map, all cellular reception has been lost, and a mysterious UFO-like object hovers ominously overhead. Something sinister is encroaching on Bacurau and even if they don’t know what it is, the residents are ready. Both a hypnotically intense, no-holds-barred sci-fi survival thriller and a stunningly subversive howl of anti-colonialist fury, this genre-bending parable of exploitation and resistance explodes with the force of a Molotov cocktail hurled straight into the eye of racial and political oppression.
