Movies and Tea

On this episode we discuss the directorial debut of Issa López which not only has seen her draw comparisons to the Guillermo del Toro but also his admiration aswell.

With her debut film she blends fairy tale fantasy against the harsh reality of the Mexican drug wars as a young girl called Estrella returns home to find her mother missing and persumed to have been  kidnapped by the local drugs cartel currently terrorising the city. Now joining  a group of orphaned street kids and empowered  with the gift of three wishes she joins them on their quest for  revenge.
