New Trailer and Poster for Mexican Oscar Entry PRAYERS FOR THE STOLEN

Prayers for the Stolen
Mexico's Oscar submission comes to UK/ROI cinemas in April.

Director Tatiana Huezo's Prayers for the Stolen was chosen as Mexico's submission for this year's Academy Awards. The film stars Ana Cristina Ordóñez González and Mayra Membreño, with both actresses playing Ana, a young woman who finds herself on the run from a violent cartel.

Prayers for the Stolen is in UK/ROI cinemas from April 8th and on MUBI UK from April 29th.

Check out the trailer and poster below.




The official synopsis reads:

Loosely adapted from Jennifer Clement’s 2014 novel, it follows the lives of three girls in Guerrero whose childhoods are overshadowed by the forceful and violent presence of the local cartel. The film pivots around Ana (played at different times by Ana Cristina Ordóñez González and Mayra Membreño) and her friends, whose worlds are governed by those wanting to turn them into slaves or ghosts. Trained by their mothers to flee at any moment and forced into extreme measures to evade capture, these young women must learn to abandon their femininity in order to navigate their harsh surroundings.
