Today on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re sharing a conversation following the 57th New York Film Festival premiere of Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles’s rollicking thriller Bacurau, which is now playing at Film at Lincoln Center. The film follows the community of a vibrant, richly diverse Brazilian town who fight back when they become the targets of a group of armed mercenaries.
The directors and legendary actress Sônia Braga will return to FLC this Sunday for a Q&A at the 6:15pm screening. The directors will also be back next week on March 10, 12, and 13 for Q&As at the 6:15pm screenings.
From March 13-24, we’re also proud to present Mapping Bacurau, an explosive 13-film series featuring influences hand-picked by the directors of Bacurau. From spaghetti westerns to horror and sci-fi gems to Brazilian classics, the series features John Carpenter’s Starman in 70mm, the 4K restoration of Robin Hardy’s folk horror classic The Wicker Man, Sergio Leone’s western epic Duck, You Sucker! in 35mm, and much more.
