AWARDS: San Sebastian (Special Jury Prize)
OFFICIAL SELECTION: Toronto International Film Festival, Locarno
Pretty-boy Miguel and the bisexual son of his mother's maid, Johnny, get in way over their heads trying to make some cash at black market blood drives, and their tender, closeted love-story becomes an edge-of-your-seat political thriller. I PROMISE YOU ANARCHY is a wildly directed, energetic youth film about untamed love, repressed desire, internalized homophobia, class relations, and the ongoing problem of organized crime in Mexico City. Winner of multiple international awards, and nominated for the Golden Leopard at this year's Locarno Film Festival.
