Directed by Alexandre Moratto and starring Christian Malheiros and Rodrigo Santoro, Netflix’s new Brazilian film, 7 Prisoners, will be screened for the first time on September 6 during the 78th Venice Film Festival. The plot follows young Mateus (Malheiros) who leaves the countryside searching for a job opportunity in São Paulo at a junkyard run by Luca (Santoro). Once there, he ends up becoming a victim of a work system analogous to slavery. After the global debut at the festival, 7 Prisoners will officially premiere later in 2021 on Netflix.

The film was selected to participate in the Festival in the Orizzonti Extra category, which brings together works of different genres, audience and length. The production is by Ramin Bahrani (responsible for The White Tiger, also from Netflix) and Fernando Meirelles, with O2 Filmes, and the script is signed by Thayná Mantesso and director Alexandre Moratto. Known for his work in Sócrates (2018), this is the second feature film by the Brazilian-American filmmaker.

7 Prisoners is one of the national productions that will be released later this year by Netflix. From July to December, original and unprecedented Brazilian content will be launched every month, with exclusivity, at the streaming service – fictional and documentary series, movies and reality shows: the best Brazilian stories in different genres and formats, to different tastes and moods.
