Produced by Fernando Meirelles (CITY OF GOD), the directorial debut of journalist, musician and actor Wagner Moura (ELITE SQUAD, NARCOS) stars screen and music icon Seu Jorge (CITY OF GOD, THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU) as Afro-Brazilian poet and revolutionary Carlos Marighella. Set during the brutal, right-wing dictatorship which followed the military coup of 1964, MARIGHELLA is an absorbing, action-packed portrait of one of Brazil's most divisive historical figures. Leading the Ação Libertadora Nacional (National Liberation Action) in an armed struggle against the regime, Marighella evades capture again and again as he is relentlessly pursued by the state. Highly controversial in Brazil, where the film remains unreleased, MARIGHELLA is a timely examination of a painful historical moment with powerful resonance in the present. Winner, ¡Viva el Cine! Audience Award, 2020 Mill Valley Film Festival. Official Selection, 2019 Berlin, Hong Kong, Seattle and AFI Latin American film festivals.
