Part of RoxCine’s FRONTERA! film series. Co-sponsored by the General Consulate of Mexico in San Francisco. Co-presented by Cine+Mas SF / San Francisco Latino Film Festival, PODER (SF), Carecen SF and Latino Community Foundation.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with director Jonás Cuarón!

From Jonás Cuarón and Alfonso Cuarón, the acclaimed filmmakers of “Gravity,” comes a unique, modern vision of terror. “Desierto” is a visceral, heart-pounding suspense-thriller packed with tension and suspense from start to finish, starring Gael García Bernal (“The Motorcycle Diaries” and “Y Tu Mamá También”) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (“The Walking Dead”, “Watchmen”). 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.

“A brutal and merciless chase thriller that makes no apologies for its political one-sidedness and visceral extremity: You’ve undoubtedly heard more nuanced arguments in defense of immigrant rights, but perhaps none delivered with such heart-pounding intensity.” – Justin Chang, Variety

Directed by Jonás Cuarón. Written by Jonas Cuaron, Mateo Garcia. Cinematography by Damian Garcia. Produced by Jonas Cuaron, Alfonso Cuaron, Carlos Cuaron, Alex Garcia, Charles Gilbert. Executive produced by David Linde, Gael Garcia Bernal, Nicolas Celis, Santiago Garcia Galvan. Starring Gael Garcia Bernal, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Alondra Hidalgo. Mexico, France. 2015. 94 min. DCP.

The US-México border: a unique stretch of land south of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and north of Baja California, Sonora, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León and Tamaulipas dividing the two countries. I say Rio Grande, you say Río Bravo. Made aquí y allá, new and old, FRONTERA! is an ongoing series of narrative and documentary films that describe this peculiar area of the world in realistic, imaginary, troubled and playful forms.
