Following its premiere at the Berlinale, Marighella was roundly criticised in Brazil – including by President Jair Bolsonaro – despite the film not being released there. This absorbing thriller is a celebration of Carlos Marighella, played brilliantly by musician and actor Jorge (The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, City of God). In 1960s Brazil, ruled by a violent military dictatorship, Marighella leads a small group of guerillas in an armed struggle against the regime. Relentlessly pursued as the government's number one enemy, Marighella cleverly evades capture, all the while continuing to inflict damage and further enraging his pursuers. With exhilarating action sequences, this rousing historical film has powerful resonance in the present, in Brazil and beyond.
