MFAH presents a Digital Screening of Bacurau
Thursday, March 26, 2020
The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston launches its virtual theater with the Cannes Film Festival award-winning Brazilian feature Bacurau.
Set a “few years from now,” the small village of Bacurau 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 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 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. The mercenaries just may have met their match in the fed-up, resourceful denizens of little Bacurau.
Tickets to screen the film from home are $12 and are good for a five-day pass to watch the movie. Click here for more information or to screen the movie.
