Carro Rei

  • 99'
  • Brazil
  • 2021

A taxi company owner’s son has an extraordinary connection with cars: he can talk to them. He makes friends with the car that saved him from a traffic accident as a child, but he also hears the old wrecks complain about the law banning cars over 15 years old from the roads. Together with his uncle, he converts the write-offs into futuristic vehicles that are conscious and speak. They then take on the status quo under King Car’s banner. However, capitalism’s zombies prove more evil than expected.

Combining steel, roaring engines, sex and desire, Carro Rei expands on classics like Christine and Crash. There’s also an unmistakably political layer that comments on Brazilian president Bolsonaro’s populism and global climate change. All in old-school–futurist design.
