A few years from now… Bacurau, a small village in the Brazilian sertão, mourns the loss of its matriarch, Carmelita, who lived to be 94. Days later, its inhabitants (among them Sônia Braga) notice that their village has literally vanished from most maps and a UFO-shaped drone starts flying overhead. There are forces that want to expel them from their homes, and soon, in a genre-bending twist, a band of armed mercenaries led by Udo Kier arrive in town picking off the inhabitants one by one. A fierce confrontation takes place when the townspeople turn the tables on the villainous outsiders, banding together by any means necessary to protect and maintain their remote community.

“Unexpectedly moving… a genre-busting entertainment that is at once a portrait of a community, a horror thriller and a timely piece of political filmmaking.” – John Powers, NPR
“Four stars! BACURAU never wastes a chance to leave a mark on its audience.” – Monica Castillo, RogerEbert.com
“A modern-day Western with some of the raw, hallucinatory power of a Sergio Leone epic. Rich and extremely filling.” – Justin Chang, The Los Angeles Times
