Action drama, dir. by Wagner Moura
Brazil, 2019, 155 min
In Portuguese with English subtitles
Wagner Moura’s directing debut is a searing and energized portrait of one of Brazil’s most divisive historical figures, Afro-Brazilian poet and politician Carlos Marighella (Seu Jorge). Following the CIA-backed military coup of 1964 and the brutal right-wing dictatorship that followed, the revolutionary leaves behind wife and son to fight the erosion of civil and human rights, authoring the highly influential Minimanual of the Urban Guerilla. An urgent call to action in an unsteady time, Marighella is not to be missed. To see the full roster of films, please go here.
