MARIGHELLA is set in 1969 and is based on the life of Afro-Brazilian politician and guerrilla fighter Carlos Marighella. Facing a violent military dictatorship and with little support from a timid opposition, writer-turned-politician Carlos Marighella organizes a resistance movement. Alongside revolutionaries 30 years younger than him and willing to fight, the revolutionary leader opts for action.
"Marighella is an urgent film in its commitment and cinematic intensity, and it could hardly be more timely." -Jonathan Romney, Screen International
