Ruthless… Distinctive… Outlandish… MUBI Unveil The Trailer And Poster For BACURAU Ahead of March Release On The Platform
“Utterly distinctive film-making, executed with ruthless clarity and force” - ★★★★ - Guardian
“A stunning and furious piece of social commentary” - ★★★★★ - SciFiNow
“Outlandish… A jolting allegorical bloodbath” - ★★★★ - Daily Telegraph
Curated global streaming service and theatrical film distributor MUBI is delighted to announce the UK theatrical release of the 2019 Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize Winner BACURAU in cinemas nationwide 13 March 2020, followed by an exclusive streaming launch on MUBI on 27 March 2020.
Bacurau, a small settlement in Brazil’s remote backcountry, is shaken by the death of its elderly matriarch. But something strange is happening in the village, and there’s little time for mourning. The water supply has been cut off, animals are stampeding through the streets, and empty coffins are turning up on the roadside. One morning, the villagers wake up to find their home has disappeared from satellite maps completely. Under threat from an unknown enemy, Bacurau braces itself for a bloody, brutal fight for survival.
With unforgettable performances from Bárbara Colen, Udo Kier and Sonia Braga, this is an audacious, original and spectacularly violent blend of neo-Western, revenge thriller and political allegory. Tipping its hat to Sergio Leone and John Carpenter, it’s a whirlwind of genre twists and surrealist turns guaranteed to leave you punch-drunk and reeling.
Following the critically-acclaimed NEIGHBOURING SOUNDS and AQUARIUS, Kleber Mendonça Filho shares directorial credit with long-time collaborator Juliano Dornelles in this uniquely hallucinatory and satirical parable.
BACURAU IS IN CINEMAS IN THE UK AND IRELAND FROM 13 MARCH 2020 AND COMING TO MUBI 27 MARCH 2020
