Thousands have been murdered or gone missing in Mexico's ongoing violent drug war. The result is many orphaned children living on the streets caught in the unceasing cartel crossfire. In her third work of immense beauty, pain, fear and joy, writer/director Issa López tells the magical story of five such urchins making the best of their daily struggle to survive. Perfectly balanced between harsh reality and the fantastic, this unflinching cautionary fable is part PAN'S LABYRINTH, part CITY OF GOD, all innovative South of the Border fairytale.
From October 3rd to October 5th, the Night Light Film Festival will take over the Apollo Cinema in downtown Kitchener, Ontario for a film festival unlike any the Waterloo region has seen before. Featuring the finest offerings in modern horror, science fiction, fantasy, and offbeat cinema, Night Light will present a weekend of thrilling films and special guests that before now, Waterloo region film lovers have had to travel to Toronto and Montreal to experience.
