Synopsis

In the near future... the people of Bacurau mourn the death of their matriarch Carmelita, who lived to the ripe age of 94. A few days later, its inhabitants realize that the town is being wiped off the map. Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles directed this deeply ironic and brutal dystopia that’s extremely critical of this day and age, and that picked up the Jury Award at the most recent Cannes Film Festival.
