'Lorenzo Vigas' impressive debut charts an unlikely May-December romance with grace, subtley and tension' - The Hollywood Reporter

Armando (Alfredo Castro) is a lonely, middle-aged dental prosthetist who passes his afternoons picking up boys from the street, intentionally putting himself in harm's way. When he seeks the repeated company of Elder (Luis Silva), what begins as a masochistic grooming exercise soon threatens to evolve into something sweeter, or perhaps more sinister. Vigas developed his screenplay in partnership with Mexican writer and director Guillermo Arriaga (Amores Perros, Babel) so expect ambitious, slow-burn misanthropy. Desde Allá is a singular work from a first time filmmaker who is already making his mark on the international cinema scene.
