RoxCine inaugurates FRONTERA!

Film series with Jonás Cuarón’s border thriller DESIERTO, on Sunday May 28 at the Roxie Theater. A Q&A with Jonás Cuarón will follow the screening.

From Jonás Cuarón and Alfonso Cuarón, the acclaimed filmmakers of “Gravity,” comes a unique, modern vision of terror. “Desierto” is a visceral, heart-pounding thriller packed with tension and suspense from start to finish, starring Gael García Bernal (“The Motorcycle Diaries” and “Y Tu Mamá También”) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (“The Walking Dead”, “Watchmen”). What begins as a hopeful journey to seek a better life becomes a harrowing and primal fight for survival when a deranged, rifle-toting vigilante chases a group of unarmed men and women through the treacherous U.S.-Mexican border. In the harsh, unforgiving desert terrain, the odds are stacked firmly against them as they continuously discover there’s nowhere to hide from the unrelenting, merciless killer.

Directed by Jonás Cuarón. Starring Gael García Bernal, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Alondra Hidalgo. Mexico, France. 2015. 94 min. DCP. In Spanish and English with English subtitles.
