Introducing Images Online, a virtual effort by Images Cinema to continue to introduce the best new films to our community while we are temporarily closed. Films can be watched online on your at-home screens. The cost of each online “ticket” sold will be split between Bacurau’s distributor, Kino Lorber, and Images Cinema, so each rental will directly help the theater weather these challenging times. Thanks to the filmmakers for their partnership, and thanks to you, our film-loving community, for your continued support of Images.

"A modern-day western with the raw power of a Sergio Leone epic." — Los Angeles Times

A few years from now... Bacurau, a small village in the Brazilian sertão, mourns the loss of its matriarch, Carmelita, who lived to be 94. Days later, its inhabitants (among them Sônia Braga) notice that their village has literally vanished from online maps and a UFO-shaped drone is seen flying overhead. There are forces that want to expel them from their homes, and soon, in a genre-bending twist, a band of armed mercenaries led by Udo Kier arrive in town picking off the inhabitants one by one. A fierce confrontation takes place when the townspeople turn the tables on the villainous outsiders, banding together by any means necessary to protect and maintain their remote community. The mercenaries just may have met their match in the fed-up, resourceful denizens of little Bacurau.
