Amat Escalante - Mexico - 2016



La Biennale di Venezia


The movie reflects Alejandra's life who is a young woman raising her kids with her husband Angel in a little city. Her brother Fabian is a nurse at the local hospital. Their lives change when Veronica arrives. Sex and family are very fragile in some areas where family values exist and the hipocresy, homophobia and male percepction are strong. Veronica convinced them that in the woods, in an isolate cabin there is something out of this world but it is the answer to all of their problems. It is something which you can't resist and they will need to make peace with it or suffer its rage.
