LA LLORONA, on Rolling Stone’s list of 20 best movies of 2020
16 December, 2020
We are honored to share that the prestigious Rolling Stone magazine has chosen LA LLORONA as one of the 20 BEST MOVIES OF 2020 !
“It’s a deeply unsettling ghost story that doubles as an exorcism for social ills and historical political sins, and an exemplary cri de coeur about the past never being done with us; the fact that the general is loosely based on an actual dictator only gilds the narrative lily.”
According to the magazine, the movie also ranks #2 BEST HORROR MOVIE OF 2020 !
“It’s the kind of tale of mystery and imagination that prefers to get under your skin rather than shock your central nervous system, which only makes its near-suffocating feeling of foreboding more potent.”
LA LLORONA has been selected to represent Guatemala at the 2021 Oscars® and has participated in prestigious and widely-known festivals, including TIFF, San Sebastián, Sundance, Tokyo, BFI or Venice’s Giornate Degli Autori, where it won the GDA Director’s Award.
