About Vuelven (Tigers Are Not Afraid)

Not rated
Year Released:

A haunting horror fairytale set against the backdrop of Mexico’s devastating drug wars, Tigers Are Not Afraid follows a group of orphaned children armed with three magical wishes, running from the ghosts that haunt them and the cartel that murdered their parents. Filmmaker Issa López creates a world that recalls the early films of Guillermo del Toro, imbued with her own gritty, urban spin on magical realism to conjure a wholly unique experience audiences will not soon forget. Del Toro, who presented the film along with López at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival, described it as “an unsparing blend of fantasy and brutality, innocence and evils. Innovative, compassionate, and mesmerizing.” The two are currently working together on a werewolf Western. In Spanish with English subtitles. Contains explicit content, including violence, strong language, and drug references.
