Loosely based on the life of infamous Mexican drug lord Ricardo Lopez, Eduardo Barraza's atmospheric action movie was a hit both in Mexico and on the U.S. festival circuit. LA SOMBRA DEL SAHUARO tells the story of two brothers: Sahuaro (Eduardo Santamarina) went to live with his uncle as a child and grew up to be a feared criminal, while his brother (Marco Perez) stayed with their mother and became a successful businessman. But as money and jealousy come between the two adult brothers, they're forced into a violent showdown in a dusty border town. Written by
