La Llorona

Synopsis

Thrilling and deeply moving, this reimagining of the legend of La Llorona transplants the ghost tale of the Weeping Woman to modernday Guatemala. General Enrique Monteverde has been acquitted on technicalities after being found guilty of atrocities committed during the Civil War years earlier. Following his release, the general and his family are haunted by the spectacle of angry protesters on the streets and the specter inside their home.

“This taut, accomplished film recounts a dark episode in Guatemala’s history as a suspense-laden ghost story based on a myth deeply rooted in indigenous Latin American culture.”
