Buy Me a Gun
aka Cómprame un revolver
First screened in October 2018
Director: Julio Hernández Cordón. Cast: Matilde Hernandez, Rogelio Sosa, Mariano Sosa, Ángel Rafael Yanez, Sostenes Rojas, Fabiana Hernandez, Oswaldo Sanchez, Ángel Leonel Corral, Jhoan Martinez, Wallace Pereyda. Screenplay: Julio Hernández Cordón (inspired by key elements of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain).

Twitter Capsule: Less Huck Finn, more Beasts of the Dystopian Wild. Collapsed world viewed inductively from defiantly odd perspectives.

VOR:   I get why some viewers reject its odd construction and erratic narrative, but I see a daring intervention into dystopian genre and broadly "American" tropes.
