In this Brazilian thriller, which picked up the Best Feature Film Award at Fantastic Fest 2023, a woman becomes trapped in her armoured car when rebelling workers occupy her family's estate.

Teresa and her husband travel to their family farm to take refuge from urban violence. But there they face a revolt by local workers, alarmed by the imminent loss of their homes. She locks herself in her armoured car, but is unable to start it. Meanwhile, workers try to communicate with her and if necessary, take her out by force. The layer of armour that separates these two universes may not be enough to contain the fear and violence that grows every passing minute. PROPERTY is the second feature film written and directed by Daniel Bandeira.

"Moments of shock will leave many audience member’s jaws on the floor."
- The Blogging Banshee
"Part home-invasion, part eat-the-rich warfare, and all murky moral ground, PROPERTY is as merciless as the society which birthed the film’s treacherous class disparity to begin with."
- Dead Ringers
