In order to minimize health and safety risks from COVID-19 to our patrons, the larger community, and Duke students, faculty, and staff, Duke University has adopted new policies on spring semester classes, residential life, travel, events, and campus visitors. (Find this update and the latest information on Duke’s Coronavirus response website.)
In keeping with the university’s directives, all public events at the Rubenstein Arts Center between March 10 and April 20, 2020 are CANCELED, including this event and all remaining Screen/Society screenings for the Spring 2020 semester.
(Check back in late summer on the Screen/Society website to see which canceled screenings will be rescheduled in the Fall 2020 semester.)
(Kleber Mendonça Filho & Juliano Dornelles, 2019, 130 min, Brazil/France, Portuguese w/ English subtitles, Color, DCP)
A remote Brazilian village finds itself mysteriously erased from the world map as foreign interlopers begin to encroach. Featuring a cosmic overture, unexplained hallucinogens, and an abundance of mysterious coffins, Mendonça Filho and Dornelles have crafted a fiercely political core to match their film’s gonzo genre exterior.
-- Introduced by Prof. Gustavo Furtado (Dept. of Romance Studies)
Jury Prize winner, 2019 Cannes Film Festival.
"Wittily set at the intersection of the art house and the grindhouse… [Bacurau] easily seduces and then it shocks… A heart-thumping political allegory that tips its hat to masters like John Carpenter." -- Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
Sponsored by the Program in the Arts of the Moving Image (AMI).
Screen/Society screenings are free and open to the public.
