We’ve teamed up with our friends at Kino Lorber to bring BACURAU to the AFI Silver – virtually! Now you can watch this multi-award-winning genre-bender at home, all while supporting AFI Silver during our temporary closure. A portion of the proceeds from all sales will support the AFI Silver Theatre.

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, AQUARIUS; DONA FLOR AND HER TWO HUSBANDS; KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN) notice that their village has literally vanished from online maps, and a UFO-shaped drone is seen 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 arrives in town and begins picking off the town’s 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. The mercenaries may have met their match in the fed-up, resourceful denizens of little Bacurau. DIR/SCR Kleber Mendonça Filho, Juliano Dornelles; PROD Saïd Ben Saïd, Michel Merkt. Brazil/France, 2019, color, 131 min. In English and Portuguese with English subtitles. NOT RATED
