HELI

DIRECTOR: Amat Escalante - MEXICO

Heli works at a car factory and tries hard to provide for his young wife, son, and sister Estela. Twelve-year-old Estela has fallen in love with a young police cadet with whom she wants to run away and marry. As she pursues her dream, one deadly mistake leads to another, and she unwittingly drags her family into the horror of devastating drug violence. Once events are set in motion, there is no escaping the destruction that results from a society ruled by men with guns. A portrayal of the most violent contemporary landscape imaginable, Escalante’s film confirms that it is the poor and innocent who always pay the highest price. Winner of the Best Director Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and this year’s Mexican submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. (105 mins.)

Filmography: Sangre (05), Los Bastardos (08).

Sponsored by the Consulate of Mexico in Portland.
