La Llorona

A Film by Rosana Cuellar

Synopsis

“La Llorona” is a surrealistic film about a group of children living in a house without adult supervision who feel haunted by the ghost of the Llorona -the legendary Mexican ghost of a woman who murdered her children, and whom they hear sighing at night.
Their powerful fantasy guided by their fear, unleashes a chain of events that lead them to become a part of this legend themselves.
Shot in Puebla, Mexico, this s3D film plays, in its oneiric style, an atmospheric haze befitting childhood.
