Shoot Down movie trailer - starring Roberto Escobar, Marlene Alejandre-Triana, Frank Angones. Directed by Christina Khuly. Theatrical Release Date: 1/25/2008
A powerful yet restrained psychological thriller, MARTHA, MARCY MAY, MARLENE tells the story of a young woman rapidly unraveling amidst her attempt to reclaim a normal life. Escaping a harrowing experience as a cult member in rural New York, Martha (newcomer Elizabeth Olsen) seeks help from her estranged older sister Lucy (Sarah Paulson), though she is unable and unwilling to reveal the truth about her disappearance. With a mounting sense of dread, Lucy comes to realize that her sister's bizarre behavior may point to something much graver than an idiosyncratic personality.
Lost in a post-traumatic torment, Martha's memories trigger the chilling paranoia that her former cult is actively pursuing her. As her reality blurs with delusion, we realize that Martha (cult aliases Marcy May and Marlene) is lost in the eye of an emotional storm much larger than anyone could have suspected.
Sin Nombre is an epic dramatic thriller written and directed by Student Academy Award winner Cary Joji Fukunaga in his feature debut. The filmmaker's firsthand experiences with Central American immigrants seeking the promise of the U.S. form the basis of the Spanish-language movie.
Sin Nombre tells the story of Sayra (Paulina Gaitan), a teenager living in Honduras, and hungering for a brighter future. A reunion with her long-estranged father gives Sayra her only real option emigrating with her father and her uncle into Mexico and then the United States, where her father now has a new family.
Meanwhile, Casper, a.k.a. Willy (Edgar Flores), is a teenager living in Tapachula, Mexico, and facing an uncertain future. A member of the Mara Salvatrucha gang brotherhood, he has just brought to the Mara a new recruit, 12-year-old Smiley (Kristyan Ferrer), who undergoes a rough initiation.
While Smiley quickly takes to gang life, Casper tries to protect his relationship with girlfriend Martha Marlene (Diana Garcia), keeping their love a secret from the Mara. But when Martha encounters Tapachula's Mara leader Lil' Mago (Tenoch Huerta Mejia), she is brutally taken from Casper forever.
Sayra and her relatives manage to cross over into Mexico. There, they join other immigrants waiting at the Tapachula train yards. When a States-bound freight train arrives one night, they successfully rush to board riding atop it, rather than in the cars as does Lil' Mago, who has commandeered Casper and Smiley along to rob immigrants.
When day breaks, Lil' Mago makes his move and Casper in turn makes a fateful decision. Casper must now navigate the psychological gauntlet of his violent existence and the physical one of the unforgiving Mara, but Sayra bravely allies herself with him as the train journeys through the Mexican countryside towards the hope of new lives.
