Synopsis


Cruzando
An expectant Latin American father races to cross the U.S. border to prevent his own father from being executed in this comedy drama from co-directors Mike Escamilla and Mando Alvarado. In just one week, Manuel will be a father. Upon learning that his father in Texas has been sentenced to capital punishment, however, Manuel feels compelled to try and get his beloved dad a reprieve. Though his wife voices her opposition to the idea, Manuel promptly quits his job at the local strip club, and enlists his best friend Diego as his right hand man. With his trusty video camera in hand, Diego begins documenting the journey as the thuggish bouncer from the strip club races to track Manuel down. Later, as Manuel and Diego seek a coyote to help them cross the border quickly, their adventure leads them to gain a greater appreciation for the things they have in life, rather than dwelling on the things they have always wished for. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Festival Favorite

    OhhhGaaaaah

    I am so glad this film is getting distribution. Thank you Best Buy! If any of the festival films I saw last year deserved it, this one did. Made by first time film makers (one of my favorite things to watch), "Cruzando" is not your typical border crossing film. This is an outrageous comedy with a lot of heart. This would make a great addition to any film lovers collection. Can't wait to see more from these guys!

    I saw this at The Newport Beach Film Festival and I wasn't expecting much from another border story. IT'S NOT!! It is funny, heartfelt and nothing like anything I have ever seen. The cinematography is amazing. I am so glad I will get a chance to finally own this. It's just a gem! Highly recommend it!
