There are several films of interest at this year's LA Film Festival. A couple highlights:
Starring Gael Garcia Bernal and directed by Jonas Cuaron, this thriller follows a group of Mexican immigrants over the U.S. border.
Lupe bajo el sol (Lupe Under the Sun), Mexico/USA
Long estranged from his family in Mexico, migrant laborer Lupe finds relief from the backbreaking work of harvesting peaches in California’s Central Valley through beer-drenched camaraderie and a quiet love affair with fellow immigrant Gloria. Soon the stability of his daily routine begins to crack under the weight of a life scarred with regret and missed opportunities.
Los Angeles: June 1 - 9. Full lineup and details here.
