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.
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.
