BACURAU—the extraordinary epic of Antifa righteousness pitting fascist death squads against the inhabitants of a small village in northern Brazil—was written and directed by Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles. An opening title card places the film a few years into the future. But in Jair Bolsonaro’s creeping state of siege, it’s less a world to come than a world already here.
On Friday night at the Nuart, join star Udo Kier for a post-screening Q & A.
