Director Statement

This is an unabashed genre work of rural-Chicanx cinema. I call it a neo-Southwestern, as it is a neo-western through a distinct Chicanx/Latinx lense. This film is about violence amongst ethnicity and gender and where it finds it’s way in the rural southwest. It is about toxic American Masculity and toxic Mexican Machismo and how a lone woman must fight past that when her very life and soul is as stake. –Antonio Márquez
