El norte sobre el vacío
After successfully launching her sophomore feature Las niñas bien at the Toronto Intl. Film Feature in 2018, Mexico City based filmmaker Alejandra Márquez Abella has been rocketing up the film scene first by being attached to the Netflix English biopic project A Million Miles Away, to prepping a pro-stance series for women called La Liberación, to a project inspired by her paternal grandmother called La Triste, to filming episodes of Narcos: Mexico, and finally, this July she embarked on her third feature film project titled El norte sobre el vacío. In post since October-ish, this is a Western with a mostly female that includes Juan Daniel García Treviño from I’m No Longer Here and La Civil fame. Gabriel Nuncio (an actor in Las niñas bien) co-wrote and produced the project – he also acted in Abella’s film debut – Semana Santa.
Gist: This is a Western. More details to come..
Release Date/Prediction: Directors’ Fortnight could be a contender but we see this going to a couple of genre film festivals.
