International Film Festival at St. Cloud State

November 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The International Film Series presented by  St. Cloud State University’s Department of Film Studies has returned!

On Monday, Nov. 29th, the fourth film of the series, “Bacurau” by Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles. “Bacurau” is shown in a two-part screening on November 29 and December 6th.

In this radical and supranational political fantasy the epic story follows the citizens of Bacurau, a fictiona village in isolated northeastern Brazil as they engage in a merciless battle over access to water. Kleber Mendonça, after Aquarius continues to reflect about the power of traditional and vulnerable communities to resist against the greed of ingrained local corruption as well as against the monstrous voracity of capitalistic foreign powers. “Bacurau” is a hallucinatory collage of Wester-horror-science fiction and ethnographic cinema. It is also one of the most current and disturbing embodiments of an ecologically and multi-culturally aware cautionary tale.

(DEC 6: Part II “Bacurau” (2019) by Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles. “Bacurau” is shown in a two-part screening.)

The screening begins at 7 p.m. in the Atwood Little Theatre and is free and open to the public. Discussions follow each film in the series.
