Los Angeles Premiere

Juan Pablo González’s Caballerango (Horse Wrangler) (2018, 62 min, Digital, Spanish / English subtitles) is an intimate portrait of rural Mexican life amidst the deepening presence of tragedy and loss. In the village of Milpillas, a family remembers the last day they saw Nando, their youngest and apprentice to his father José, a horse wrangler. Through a subtle weaving of multiple voices and vivid locales, Caballerango poignantly reflects a community’s will to survive. Juan Pablo González is a Mexican filmmaker who was among Filmmaker Magazine’s 2015 “25 New Faces of Independent Film.” His work has been screened at Cannes, Rotterdam, IDFA, BAM, Mexico City Cinemathèque, and other international venues.
