  • tupac_amaru.jpg

    This is a dramatic retelling of the heroism of Tupac Amaru, an Incan leader who organized the people who made up the lowest rungs of society underneath the Spanish colonialists -- the workers, slaves, and the remains of the Incan nation -- and raised an armed rebellion against the Spanish. His rebellion failed, his family was killed, and he was cruelly executed, with his legs and arms tied to four horses and torn away from his body. (
  • Marighella.png

    Beginning with a breathless, Robin Hood-style train robbery and ending with a highly provocative—and not for the faint of heart—final sequence, the directing debut from journalist, musician, and actor Wagner Moura (Elite Squad; Pablo Escobar in Narcos) is a searing and energized portrait of one of Brazil’s most divisive historical figures, Afro-Brazilian poet and politician Carlos Marighella (actor/singer Seu Jorge, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou). Driven to fight against the erosion of civil and human rights following the CIA-backed military coup of 1964 and the brutal right-wing dictatorship that followed, the revolutionary leaves behind his wife, Clara (Adriana Esteves), and son, Carlinhos, to take to the streets, authoring the highly influential Minimanual of the Urban Guerrilla,becoming a notorious enemy to the power structure, and being doggedly pursued by sadistic chief inspector Lucio (Bruno Gagliasso) before an untimely death in a dramatic police ambush in 1969.
