Certainly worthy of attention.
There's a raw power to Rugeles' vision that's difficult to shake off, as well as honesty that makes it stand out in the festival.
The film is anchored by newcomer Karen Torres, who makes María a sympathetic soul who’s our entry point into this blunt exposé.
Camilo Sanabria provides an effective score and Sergio Ivan Castano's cinematography puts us deep into the humid claustrophobic closeness of the forest.
