Sin Cielo

J.S. Maarten
United States, 2017, 25 min.

In Spanish with English subtitles.
This film is family friendly.

Delia and Memo are like most teenagers; defiant, hormonal, always on their phones; except they live in one of the most dangerous neighborhoods bordering Northern Mexico where dollars rule and girls' bodies turn up mysteriously in the river or never at all.

Director's Statement

Sin Cielo was made as part of the graduate requirement at American Film Institute. It is a creative endeavor of an international group of filmmakers wanting to explore the long-standing issue of disappearing girls from the borders of the U.S. and Mexico and the thousands of murders contributed to these disappearances. In the exploration of the communities living on the border towns, the filmmakers witnessed a lot of love and romantic leanings and decided that young love was the best way to explore such a tragic ending.

Category: Drama.
Themes: Border, Community, Culture, Family, Youth.
