Killing Strangers / Matar Extraños

Jacob Schulsinger, Nicolas Pereda (DK, 2013)

Matar Extraños (Jacob Schulsinger, Jacob Schulsinger, Nicolas Pereda, DK/MX, 2013)

Through a series of casting sessions, reconstructions and improvised scenes the film tells the story of three young men who in vain try to join the Mexican revolution in 1910, and get lost in the desert north of Mexico. On their journey, they face each other's fears, their unrealistic dreams and hopes, and, not least, today's stereotypical depiction of Mexico's revolutionary past.
