RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The film "Marighella", directed by Wagner Moura, had its premiere indefinitely deferred in Brazil.

In a statement, producer O2 Filmes reported that the film's premiere, initially scheduled for November 20th, was canceled because the directors were unable to "comply with the procedures" required by the National Cinema Agency.

The date initially chosen for the release would mark both the fiftieth anniversary of Carlos Marighella's murder and the Black Awareness Day.

The funds for production and marketing of the film come from the Audiovisual Sector Fund (FSA),Subscribe to our Premium Membership Plan. Already Subscribed? Login Here
