In Spanish with English Subtitles.
Dr. Fuentes is a man in search of his legacy: seven medical students he trained to work in impoverished native villages. But early in his odyssey, he begins to suspect that "Men with guns" got there first, and with every step he is confronted by bloody realities he had long ignored. Now, his is an almost desperate quest, but for a mythical village deep in the rain forest - one last refuge of hope called Cerca del Cielo. Written and directed by John Sayles, this incredible journey of the heart and mind takes us into uncharted regions of hopelessness and unparalleled dimensions of brutality. Federico Luppi stars with a powerful ensemble cast featuring Mandy Patinkin, Dan Rivera Gonzalez, Damian Delgado, Damian Alcazar and Tania Cruz, in a searing drama from a daring filmmaker acclaimed for such provocative favorites as City of Hope, Lone Star and Passion Fish.
