Jallikattu
A portrait of a remote village where a buffalo escapes and causes a frenzy of ecstatic violence.

A small village in the forests of rural Kerala is about to face down a terrifying beast when a buffalo bound for slaughter escapes and wreaks havoc on its lanes and the surrounding farmland. When news of the escape reaches outside of the village, neighboring towns send goon squads to attempt to rein in the buffalo in the hopes that they can claim the beast and its bounty for themselves. Meanwhile, interpersonal politics complicate the struggle at home, turning friends into foes and reigniting old feuds in a raging storm of unchecked machismo. As much a wild action film as an exploration of rural masculinity run amok, Jallikattu takes its audience on an incredible visceral and emotional journey over the course of 90 blood, sweat, and tear-soaked minutes that will leave viewers gasping for breath by the time it reaches its incredible conclusion.
