North American Theatrical Release of the Brazilian Film BACURAU, Winner of Cannes’ Grand Jury Prize

U.S. Theatrical Release of BACURAU
Friday, March 6, 2020
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 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 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.
