We don’t see too many Westerns hit the big screen but we have already been treated to a couple this year… this summer The Burning will one not to miss if you are a fan of this genre.
The Burning sees writer and filmmaker Pablo Fendrik return to the director’s chair for the first time since Blood Appears back in 2008.
A brand new trailer for the film has arrived and we have it for you to take a look at:
Gael García Bernal will take on the central role of Kai and is joined on the cast list by Alice Braga, Chico Diaz, and Jorge Sesan.
Kai (Garcia Bernal), a mysterious and mystical figure, emerges from the Argentinean rainforest to rescue Vania (Braga), who has been kidnapped by mercenaries. Together they face off against the men who have ruthlessly murdered Vania’s father, a poor farmer, and taken over his land.
Part love story, part western, Fendrik turns this latter genre on its head as so-called civilisation becomes a destructive force over both the rich jungle setting and the communities living within it.
The Burning is released 19th June.
