MACHETE LANGUAGE [El lenguaje de los machetes]
Ray (Andrés Almeida, Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN) and Ramona (real-life punk rocker Jessy Bulbo) are young, in love and angry at the world. Ramona leads an anarchic all-girl band, but self-destructive Ray struggles to find his calling. Caught in a downward spiral, the revolutionary couple are increasingly drawn to commit a shocking act of terrorism. The debut feature from Kyzza Terrazas (former head of Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna's production company) is a gritty portrait of all-consuming love. Official Selection, 2011 Venice Film Festival; Special Jury Award, 2012 Cartagena Film Festival.
