Tulip Pictures and Barraca Producciones have announced that Lorena Villarreal's thrilling sci-fi drama Silencio will land in U.S. cinemas on Friday, October 26th. We've posted the trailer for you to check out below! In the film, to save her son’s life, Ana must find a powerful stone. Her grandfather originally discovered it in the Zone of Silence, the Bermuda Triangle of Mexico. Throughout her desperate search, Ana stumbles upon family secrets and enemies who believe the stone’s power is worth killing for.
“Audiences will be in awe of the Zone of Silence, but they will also be drawn to a story about family and hard choices. Silencio revolves around the life of Ana and her family, and how this powerful stone found in the Zone of Silence will affect their future. It is about love, courage and the unknown,” says Villarreal. “The central question Silencio asks is “How far would you go to save the ones you love?”
“It was important for us to film part of the movie on site, in the actual location of the Zone of Silence,” shared Denisse Chapa, producer. “We were told about some magnetism in the area that may cause all sorts of mechanical failures of equipment, cars, rockets. We were nervous about the footage being affected,” says Chapa.
Silencio is written and directed by Lorena Villarreal and stars John Noble (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King), Rupert Graves (V for Vendetta, BBC's Sherlock), Melina Matthews (Mama, The Chessplayer), Michel Chauvet (Telemundo's La Querida Del Centauro, Archivo 253), and Hoze Meléndez (I Dream in Another Language, Almacenados).
