Ahead of the premiere at Tribeca Film Festival, XYZ Films released the first teaser trailer for the Mexican occult horror Huesera, the breakout feature debut from Michelle Garza Cervera. It stars Natalia Solián, Alfonso Dosal (Netflix’s Narcos: Mexico), Mayra Batalla (Prayers for the Stolen), Mercedes Hernández (Identifying Features), Aída López (Capadocia), and Martha Claudia Moreno.
Huesera will world premiere on June 9th at Tribeca as part of the festival’s Midnight section. The film will be released theatrically in North America by XYZ Films following its global film festival run.
In Huesera, Valeria’s (Natalia Solián) joy at becoming pregnant with her first child is quickly taken away when she’s cursed by a sinister entity. As danger closes in and relationships with her family become fractured, she’s forced deeper into a chilling world of dark magic that threatens to consume her. A group of witches emerge that could be her only hope for safety and salvation, but not without grave risk.
Garza Cervera, a rising young director in the Mexican genre film scene, has been recognized internationally for her celebrated short films that have played in over a hundred film festivals around the world, including Fantastic Fest, the Fantasia International Film Festival, and Sitges.
