Winner of the New Director’s Award at the Edinburgh Film Festival, and Cinematography and Director Awards at Sundance 2009, Fukunaga’s debut feature is a riveting film that weaves together two heart-wrenching, gritty stories, creating an evocative tale of immigrants leaving South America for a better life in the States. Vivid, unforgettable storytelling grounding you in reality and offering hope, it’s the beautifully and realistically photographed story of Casper, a former teenage gang member on the run from his former gangmates, and Honduran teenager Sayra, who’s dreaming of being reunited with her father in a better life in America, as they ride the railways north. Almost universally acknowledged as one of the best films of 2009.


open_quote Will linger in the mind long after its devastating conclusion. You leave the cinema breathless and disquieted but also with a sense of having had something important revealed to you. In a very strong field, this is the year's best film so far. close_quote Andrew O’hagan, This Is London
