In the future, the very lifeblood of old Mexico - religion and freedom of expression - are outlawed. In their place is a society ruled by a totalitarian military government that controls its people through an enhanced synthetic food. Pablo, the future equivalent of a yuppie, who enjoys designer drugs and hunting poor people, is being groomed to be the next leader. When the charismatic head of a religious cult tells him his father is still alive but enslaved by the government, Pablo joins their rebellion to rescue him and bring down the industrial-military regime.
This brilliantly realised film shows that Cuaron and del Toro are not the only Mexicans capable of making quality movies, and that Mexico is a force to be reckoned with in the world of science fiction.
We are delighted that the director Francisco Laresgoiti will be with us for the movie screening and for a Q&A after the movie
