BRAZIL, France | 132 minutes | 2019

In the arid plains of northern Brazil, a village suddenly disappears from GPS maps, while down the road, a mysterious massacre occurs. Then the power cuts out and night falls. To top it all off, there may be aliens on the prowl. Pretty soon, it seems like a wise idea to take up arms. Free-spirited, rebellious and cool, this politically-minded film blows cinema wide open with its obvious references (including Glauber Rocha, John Carpenter and Sergio Corbucci), its see-sawing genres and Udo Kier as a villainous mercenary. At the last Cannes Festival, where it played in official competition, everyone raved. Now it’s our turn.

"... utterly distinctive film-making, executed with ruthless clarity and force" The Guardian
"Bolsonaro’s Brazil is brutally massacred in a sci-fi western hybrid that is incandescent with rage." Scifinow
« Acte de résistance autant que d’humanité, Bacurau est un geste de cinéma fulgurant » Cineserie
