Cinematheque at Home – curated by the Cinematheque – will offer new theatrical releases to our audience every week through Vimeo on Demand. Cinematheque at Home will offer new programs
(individual feature films and/or shorts programs) each week, which our audiences can pay to stream through our website. This is not only an opportunity for our patrons to see new cinema, but is an important way that they can continue to support independent film during this pandemic.

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. Soon forces arrive that want to expel them from their homes, and 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.
