A few years from now... Bacurau, a small village in the Brazilian sertão (hinterland), mourns the loss of its matriarch. Days later, its inhabitants (including one played by Sônia Braga) notice that their village has vanished from online maps, and a UFO-shaped drone is seen flying overhead. A fierce confrontation takes place when the townspeople turn the tables on the villainous outsiders, banding together to protect and maintain their remote community. 132 minutes. Portuguese and English with English subtitles.

Alejandro Landes’ awe-inspiring film is set on a remote mountain in Latin America. The film tracks a young group of soldiers and rebels who keep watch over an American hostage, forming an unconventional family bound together under a shadowy force known only as The Organization. After an ambush drives the squadron into the jungle, both the mission and the intricate bonds between the group begin to disintegrate. Monos examines the chaos and absurdity of war from the unique perspective of adolescence. 103 minutes. English with Spanish subtitles.

Quechua with English subtitles. 

“Delgado Aparicio’s reflective direction with a patient eye for lived-in behavior and kinetic symbolism bears artistically ripe fruit in an affectingly measured, near-perfect tour de force that demands serious attention.” — Carlos Aguilar, Los Angeles Times
