Curated by The Projector in joint collaboration with the Embassy of Mexico, the Mexican Film Festival 2017 will showcase some of Mexico’s most refreshing cinematic pictures yet.
Known for screening indie films and cult classics, The Projector will be playing host to the foreign film festival from 1 – 4 June 2017, with genres ranging from comedy, romance and even the bleak.
On the opening night of the film festival, the thriller Desert (2015) will be screened. Directed by Jonas Cuaron, the film depicts the story of an illegal border crosser who finds himself on the run from a psychotic sniper and his vicious hunting dog.
Together with the other survivors, they must find a way to eliminate the patriotic killer or risk getting gunned down themselves.
Taking a more gritty approach this year, the festival will also feature two black-and-white films; one of them being, Bleak Street (2015). Directed by Arturo Ripstein, this dark comedy tells of two elderly prostitutes who, in struggling to make ends meet, had drugged dwarf twins working as luchadores in an attempt to rob them.
These are just two of five films that will be screened at the festival. If these sound interesting to you, why not check out the others?
