Mapping Bacurau, March 13-24

Another Film at Lincoln Center whopper: Mapping Bacurau is an extensive carte-blanche series by co-directors Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles on the occasion of their BACURAU theatrical release March 6 at the center. Their film was described by IndieWire’s David Ehrlich as a wonderfully “demented Western about the perils of rampant modernization” which exhilarated audiences at the the 2019 New York Film Festival and the 2019 Cannes Film Festival where it was awarded the Jury Prize. That remarkably demented zeitgeist infuses the March 13-24 series.
