MEXICO, Germany, France | 100 minutes | 2016

A couple in crisis, a meteorite crash and elves who protect the forest: the new Escalante is unpredictable and out there. After three compelling features that include the graphic Heli (Cannes best director award), which screened at the FNC in 2014, the new outing by the talented Mexican director has been eagerly awaited. A metaphor excoriating his country’s entrenched culture of machismo and homophobia, La Region Salvaje is an astonishing blend of sci-fi and social drama. When a couple tearing each other apart takes in a young girl from an unknown world, everything stands to go sideways
