In a near-future Brazil, things aren’t going well for the inhabitants of the very diverse Bacurau – basic amenities are in short supply, they’ve just lost their matriarch, and the truck that brings clean water has arrived riddled with bullet holes. Soon, the villagers realise that not only has Bacurau been literally erased from the map, its citizens have also been sold as prey for bloodthirsty foreign hunters. As the threat gets closer, the villagers prepare for a violent confrontation in this wild and politically-charged hybrid that’s part Spaghetti western, part sci-fi and not for the faint-hearted.
Mayhem Film Festival co-directors Chris Cooke and Steven Sheil will introduce this screening.
