Udo Kier is among the lead characters of a weird ensemble film Bacurau, in competition at the Cannes Festival. In our talk he tells us about being involved in the film, his first impression of Brazil and the never-ending learning craft of acting.
Bacurau: With Bacurau, Kleber Mendonça Filho leaves behind the town of his birth, Recife, and explores the poor and isolated region of Sertao do Serido, accompanied by his production designer, Juliano Dornelles. The hardship of living off the land there has produced inequalities historically. Set in a near future, where the archaic and the hyper-modern merge, the film tells the story of the residents of Bacurau, who have just lost their matriarch, Carmelita, at the age of 94. In the depths of their bereavement, the residents realize that their village has suddenly disappeared from the map.
