Buy Me a Gun

This screening is a part of our 2019 Latin American Film Festival

NR, 84 minutes


In a timeless México where women are disappearing, a girl called Huck wears a mask to hide her gender. She helps her dad, a tormented addict, to take care of an abandoned baseball camp where the narcos gather to play. The father tries to protect her as he can. With the help of her friends, a group of lost boys who have the power of camouflaging themselves in the windy desert, Huck has to fight to overcome her reality and to defeat the local capo. (2018, Julio Hernández Cordón, Mexico/Colombia, Spanish with English subtitles, 84 min, NR)

“Buy Me a Gun is one of the most important Latin American films of the year, perhaps also in recent years.” — Jaime Pena,  Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

“This extraordinary movie doesn’t need another second of screen time to illustrate how violence continues to reflect the indifference of those who try to harness it for themselves.” — David Ehrlich, indieWire
