quietearth [Celluloid 12.07.09] Mexico trailer scifi dystopic

We've talked a lot about the Mexican scifi flick 2033 which was based on the banned Cristero War in Mexico, including an exclusive interview which director Francisco Laresgoiti, and while the original footage and trailers we had up have been yanked off youtube (but are still available on the official website), there's now an "official" minute-and-a-half long trailer, although unfortunately without English subtitles. Our own agentorange loved 2033 and called it an "allegorically rich dystopian adventure" in his review. It's played in Lund, and will be playing at more film festivals coming soon along with premiering in Mexican cinemas come February, so be sure to check it out!

It is the year 2033 in Mexico City, now called Villaparaiso (Paradise City). A military government controls society, taking from it its religious faith and freedom of expression. The main characters are Pablo and a “hidden” priest, known as Father Miguel, who transforms his life. Pablo leaves his privileged life in order to aid the helpless and destroy this system which controls the people through an addictive drink called “Pactia.” In this way he fights alongside the “believers’ to bring down the regime. Along the way, he meets Lucía, who gives him a reason to live.
