Buy Me a Gun (Cómprame un revolver)
NAME OF FILM: BUY ME A GUN (CÓMPRAME UN REVOLVER) (2018)
DIRECTOR(S): Julio Hernández Cordón
STARRING: Ángel Rafael Yanez, Wallace Pereyda, Ángel Leonel Corral
GENRE: Drama Film
SYNOPSIS: The seventh film by Meso-American filmmaker Julio Hernández Cordón (I Promise You Anarchy, ND/NF 2016) is a harrowing, blistering vision of 21st-century Mexico. In the near future, when women are endangered and the only order comes from the lawless and elusive cartel, a young girl named Huck (Matilde Hernández Guinea) must hide her gender in order to help her tormented drug addict father (Rogelio Sosa) manage an abandoned baseball field. Absurdist, macabre, and exhilarating, this highlight from the 2018 Cannes Directors’ Fortnight is like a cross between The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Mad Max, told through Hernández Cordón’s lo-fi futurist visual style.
Hola Mexico Film Festival will close with the LA premiere of MIRREYES VS GODINEZ (MIRREYES CONTRA GODINEZ), a comedic social critique on Mexico’s polarized society.
