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 offers an intimate and harrowing perspective on the traumatic pain visited upon a father, Juan who unexpectedly loses his only son. By drawing from Aztec mythology and Catholic iconography, Sacrificios tells a contemporary Mexican fairy tale full of tenderness, grief and human imagination.
