FERAL and THE TENANTS to Scare Audiences at This Year’s Hola Mexico Film Festival

HMFF 2019 Artwork LowRes 203x300 - FERAL and THE TENANTS to Scare Audiences at This Year's Hola Mexico Film Festival

The Hola Mexico Film Festival is the largest Mexican film festival held outside of Mexico itself. Taking place annually every June in Los Angeles, the fest seeks to showcase the diverse and fascinating cinema that Mexico has to offer. After getting its start in Sydney, Australia, the fest traveled throughout the country before hitting New York and finally its current home of LA. Running from May 31 through June 8, the fest will show a wide variety of titles, but we’re here to tell you about a specific duo.

This year’s fest will see two horror films in their Nocturno slot: Andrés Kaiser’s Feral and Chava Cartas’ Inquilinos (aka The Tenants). The Nocturno program will offer titles that, “…make us scream or introduce us to a world of pain and suffering – physically or mentally.”

In Feral:
Told through videotape diaries and interviews, this terrifying vision centers on Juan Felipe de Jesús (Héctor Illanes), a priest and psychoanalyst in the Oaxacan mountains who in 1986 documented the process of reintegrating three feral children back into civilized society. However, when a mysteriously tragic fire halts the priest’s good intentions, many unanswered questions are left behind about what really happened in the inhospitable terrain. Only the locals know the dark truth.
