Well into their 30s, Juan and Benjamin can’t seem to finish veterinary school or leave their parents’ homes in Satélite, Mexico City’s version of an American suburb. On a fateful Christmas eve, however, they decide it’s finally time to distinguish themselves by pulling off the most infamous heist of cultural artifacts in all of Mexican history—looting the country’s iconic National Anthropology Museum. Museo Directed by Alonso Ruizpalacios features Gael García Bernal, Simon Russell Beale, Lynn Gilmartin, Ilse Salas.

 The place:  Mexico.  The time:  The near future.  The world is divided by closed borders, but connected by a digital network that ties people together around the world.  In Santa Ana del Río, Oaxaca, where a corporation controls the small village’s water supply, Memo Cruz dreams of heading north to a big city where he can work in a high-tech factory.  When his dream becomes a reality, his reality becomes a nightmare of border walls, shanty towns, remote control drones, and security forces searching for “aqua-terrorists.”
