Pick Up Your Guns And Prepare For A BRAZILIAN WESTERN
Just announced as part of the Contemporary World Cinema program at the Toronto International Film Festival, Rene Sampaio's Brazilian Western (Faroeste Caboclo) looks to be a stylish bit of cultural appropriation with American western elements fused to a very local story inspired by a popular song. TIFF describes it like this:

Loosely based on legendary Brasilia rock band Legiao Urbana's seminal folk song, René Sampaio's lyrical, fable-like debut feature follows a young man from the provinces who decides to try his luck in the capital, where he falls in with a rough crowd -- and falls for a senator's daughter.
The trailer for this one is super promising ... take a look below.
