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. In English and Portuguese with English subtitles

Screens with The Changeling (Dir. David Hamelin and Neil Macdonald, 2019, YT, 5min) A mother returns home to find her babysitter murdered and baby daughter missing. As she struggles to find her child, the Mother enters into a battle with supernatural forces that will decide the fate of her family.
