Breaking Glass Pictures, who acquired North American rights to Chilean writer-director Fernando Guzzoni’s Jesús last November, has unveiled release dates for the film.
Jesús will open theatrically in New York and Los Angeles on September 1, New Orleans on September 8, with other markets to follow leading up to the DVD/VOD release on September 19.
Nicolás Durán and Alejandro Goic star in the film that centres on eighteen-year-old Jesús, who is trapped in a dead end cycle of drugs, sex, apathy, and an obsession with violence.
After he and his friends attack a young boy, Jesús has no choice but to turn to his father for help, despite their troubled relationship.
The film held its Us premiere at the Neighboring Scenes Series held by the Film Society of the Lincoln Center in New York City.
