About the movie, Executive Order (2020)

In a near future, the Brazilian government decides to send everybody with dark skin “back” to Africa. Brave Afro-Brazilians resist. The directing debut of popular actor Lázaro Ramos (Carandiru) is an unsettling, yet humoristic, dystopian thriller, featuring Alfred Enoch from the Harry Potter films and Seu Jorge (Marghella) in leading roles. The film’s sharp, entertaining satire feels worryingly relevant in Bolsonaro’s Brazil.
