Marighella: revolutionary biopic from Narcos' Wagner Moura criticised by Bolsonaro

Anna Jean Kaiser


Film about guerrilla fighter Carlos Marighella causes outrage in Brazil despite no release date being scheduled

film about a leftist Brazilian revolutionary, directed by Narcos star Wagner Moura, has been denounced by President Jair Bolsonaro and sparked controversy across the country before it has even been released.

The film, Marighella, is the directorial debut for Moura, a Brazilian actor from the Netflix television series. It tells the story of Carlos Marighella, a controversial Marxist guerrilla fighter during the beginning of Brazil’s military dictatorship, which lasted from 1964 to 1985.

Marighella was assassinated by the state in 1969. The dissident called for violence against dictatorship leaders and police officers in the “Mini-manual for urban guerillas”.

The film, which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival last weekend, has already proved hugely controversial in Brazil, causing worries over distribution. The film currently has no release date in the country.

“We will encounter a lot of shit when we go back to Brazil,” Moura said after the premiere.

Moura brought contemporary Brazilian politics to the red carpet at the Berlin Film Festival, kissing Jean Wyllys, Brazil’s first openly gay congressman who recently resigned due to death threats. He held up a sign commemorating Marielle Franco, an up-and-coming leftist politician who was assassinated last year.
