FOCUS ON CANNES 2019: BACURAU —Juliano Dornelles, Kleber Mendonça Filho


“A few years from now…Bacurau, a small town in the Brazilian sertão, mourns the loss of its matriarch, Carmelita, who lived to be 94. Days later, its inhabitants notice that their community has vanished from most maps.”

"Bacurau" will screen in the Official Competition. This year's jury is led by Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu.

Kleber Mendonça Filho

Kleber Mendonça Filho returns to Cannes since screening his well-received film "Aquarius" in 2016. The Brazilian filmmaker teams up with Juliano Dornelles to co-direct "Bacurau." This one looks to be a crowd-pleaser right out the gate.
