The Untamed


Friday 22 February 8.30pm Channel 039

Alejandra is a young mother who works in her in-laws' candy factory, raising her two children with her husband Ángel, in a small city in Mexico. She has an unhappy marriage. Her brother Fabián is a nurse at a local hospital and lover of her husband. Their provincial lives are altered with the arrival of Veronica who becomes Fabian's girlfriend. Sex and love are fragile in certain regions where family values exist, and where hypocrisy, homophobia, and machismo are strong. Veronica convinces them that in the nearby forest, in an isolated hut, there is something mysterious that is the answer to all their problems and it contains a power they cannot resist. The film won the Silver Lion Award at the Venice Film Festival 2016 for Best Director (Amat Escalante). Starring Ruth Ramos, Simone Bucio & Jesus Meza.
