A taciturn former soldier is employed to guard a small landholder’s estate. When an agricultural company seeks to buy up the land, he reacts in drastic fashion. A modern Western that plays out across the empty plains of southern Brazil. Developed in the Talent Project Market in 2015, Rifle was realized through the tag-team efforts of Talents alumni contributing as director, editor and sound designer. Current Talents Marcos Lopes and Glauco Firpo also contributed as sound designer/composer and cinematographer, respectively.
