Hailed by Stephen King as a “terrific film, both tough and touching,” Tigers Are Not Afraid is a haunting horror fairytale set against the backdrop of Mexico’s devastating drug wars. The film follows a group of children armed with three magical wishes, running from the ghosts that haunt them and the cartel that orphaned them. 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 that audiences will not soon forget. (Dir. by Issa López, 2017, Mexico, in Spanish with English subtitles, 83 mins., Not Rated)

The special series CineMÁS: Horror celebrates Latin American horror cinema with three wonderful titles from Brazil, Chile, and Mexico, all which masterfully weave terrifying genre conventions with local traditions, histories, and stories to become larger national political allegories.  CineMÁS: Horror is the inaugural series of the larger initiative CineMÁS, presented by The Loft Cinema, the UA Center for Latin American Studies and Cinema Tropical to promote Latin American cinema in Tucson, and foster local audiences for its exhibition.
