New film: Toñita Runs Away (Toñita Se Va de la Casa)
It’s confirmed. My new film, still to be shot in Mexico with non-professionals and on black & white film (how Bresson, right?), will screen at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego on August 30, 2012. Press release and details to be announced.
After being scolded one too many times, mischievous Toñita runs away from home. While on the road, she meets another little girl and together they embark on a frolic through the Mexican countryside. On their way to the beach, their fun is interrupted by a gang of bullies and what looks like a covered corpse in the middle of the road.
