La Civil – Preview

La Civil is a thrilling, compelling and thought-provoking drama, based on true events, from director Teodora Mihai. Cielo’s teenage daughter, Laura, is kidnapped in Northern Mexico. Despite paying several ransoms, Laura is not returned. When the authorities offer no support in the search, Cielo takes matters into her own hands, turning from a housewife into a vengeful militant. Her relentless search puts her in the crosshairs of cartel members and dubious officials alike… La Civil is a heart-breaking and important look at a country in crisis ruled by narco-violence and corruption.

The film stars Arcelia Ramìrez, Juan Daniel García Treviño, Álvaro Guerrero and Jorge A. Jimenez. La Civil is playing at Glasgow Film Festival on the 8th and 9th of March and will be released on digital platforms on the 14th of March.
