We are very pleased to screen DESIERTO, a Mexican thriller directed by Jonas Cuarón (GRAVITY) and starring Gael García Bernal (Amores Perros) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead).

What begins as a hopeful journey to seek a better life becomes a harrowing and primal fight for survival when a deranged, rifle-toting vigilante chases a group of unarmed men and women through the treacherous U.S.-Mexican border. In the harsh, unforgiving desert terrain, the odds are stacked firmly against them as they continuously discover there's nowhere to hide from the unrelenting, merciless killer.

“Desierto” is thrilling, suspenseful, and carries a simple, but clear survival and humanistic story.
