Sacrificios is a personal vision about the traumatic pain that comes from unexpectedly losing someone you love. A blend of Aztec mythology, Catholic iconography and Magic Realism, Sacrificios tells a contemporary Mexican fairytale full of tenderness, sorrow and human imagination. And by choosing to pursue what at times may seem like inappropriate, shameful and impossible thoughts, it offers the audience an experience that is deeply disturbing, yet genuinely cathartic. As a tense and emotionally-charged psychological thriller, Sacrificios fully embraces our protagonist’s bizarre hallucinations and his inner-most wishes, taking the viewer on a dark and hypnotic journey that reveals one man’s desperate attempt to cope with life’s most terrible contradictions.

Sacrificios representa una visión personal acerca del dolor traumático ocasionado por la pérdida inesperada de un ser amado. Partiendo de mitología azteca, iconografía católica y realismo mágico, Sacrificios nos narra un cuento mexicano contemporáneo lleno de ternura, pena e imaginación humana. Mediante el uso de lo que pudiera parecer inapropiado, vergonzoso e imposible; ofrece a la audiencia una experiencia que es profundamente perturbadora, y aún así genuinamente catártica. Como un intenso thriller psicológico cargado de emociones, Sacrificios acepta sin prejuicios las extrañas alucinaciones de nuestro protagonista y sus deseos más íntimos, llevando a la audiencia a un hipnótico y oscuro viaje que revela la desesperación de un hombre al hacer frente a las más terribles contradicciones de la vida.

Angelique’s Isle

(Canada)

Feature Film

2017

Based on a true story, Angelique’s Isle is one of the
most harrowing tales of perseverance and survival
to ever be recorded on the infamously beautiful and unforgiving Lake Superior. During the copper rush of 1845, Angelique Mott and her husband Charlie get
left for dead on a deserted island by a corrupt copper- hunter name Cyrus Mendenhall. A young Anishinaabe woman of seventeen, newly married Angelique
must struggle to survive the harsh winter, as Charlie succumbs to the power of the Windigo, the cannibal spirit. Angelique must heed the messages sent by her shaman grandmother via dreams and animals in order to survive.

Lake Superior was very much a place of mystery 
and the homeland of the Anishinabek for countless generations. Voyageurs and fur traders toiled in the waning days of the fur trade. Travel was either by canoe or sail; there were no roads. A new presence was also arriving, a new kind of white man began pouring in to make their fortunes off the abundant native copper of the Superior shore, material sacred to the Anishinabek for it’s special powers.

Set in a place and time never before seen on the silver screen, this is a heroine’s emotional journey based in the realm of historical fact. Angelique must confront loss, betrayal, temptation and physical suffering while struggling to make the connection to her true identity and the spirit world that will save her life, all while coming of age.
