In Amat Escalante’s (HELI) LA REGION SALVAJE, a family unit is dismantled by their discovery of several secrets, including the presence of an extraterrestrial creature that promises them to give them innumerable pleasures but with severe consequences.


Young mother Alejandra is a working housewife, raising two boys with husband Angel in a small city. Her brother Fabian works as a nurse in a local hospital. Their provincial lives are upset with the arrival of mysterious Veronica. Sex and love can be fragile in certain regions where strong family values, hypocrisy, homophobia, and male chauvinism exist. Veronica convinces them that in the nearby woods, inside an isolated cabin, dwells something not of this world that could be the answer to all of their problems. Something whose force they cannot resist and with whom they must make peace or suffer its wrath.


Critic Quotes:

Part of the charm of Hermia & Helena is in the way it freely and randomly plays with form, employing luxuriantly slow dissolves, unexpected snatches of superimposed text, and even a black-and-white film-within-the-film.” – AV Club

“By positioning Shakespeare within a chatty tale of young adulthood – and giving it a feminist slant – Piñeiro proves the vitality of the material without becoming subservient to it.” – Indiewire

“It may be Piñeiro’s most inspired and thrilling work to date, exhaustive in its means of keeping the viewer off balance and yet rich in its emotional implications.” – Slant Magazine

What knits this parade of conversations and encounters together are Piñeiro’s rapport with his actors, his eye for telling peripheral details, and his skill at sketching out a coherent space within even the most casual composition.” – Film Comment Magazine
