In this subversive, psychedelic road movie through a tropical dystopian dictatorship, an eccentric band of outsiders try to offer resistance in a Brazil controlled by a military junta and inhabited by corrupt priests foretelling the apocalypse. Their first plan is to trek through the country’s interior to deliver weapons to a group of militant nuns who live off the proceeds of their cannabis farm—a journey that becomes ever more dangerous. Sol Alegria turns a queer gaze to the legacies of Brazilian counterculture—from the novel Macunaíma to Tropicália music—as enduring testimonies of freedom and joy.
