First look at the Tribeca premiering drama.

The fourth feature from Bolivian filmmaker Martín Boulocq, The Visitor stars newcomer Enrique Aráoz as Humberto, an ex-convict whose attempts to reconnect with his daughter are thwarted by the girl's maternal grandparents, a pair of evangelical pastors. Humberto finds himself battling a powerful religious institution in this critique of the Evangelical church's growing influence in South America.

The Visitor will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 8th.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

The Visitor tells the story of Humberto (in an impressive performance by newcomer Enrique Aráoz), an ex-convict who makes a modest living by singing at wakes. Humberto’s greatest desire is to rebuild his relationship with his estranged daughter and provide her with a decent life, but the grandparents of the child—wealthy Evangelical pastors—are not willing to give up custody of their only granddaughter. Financially and ideologically bullied into a corner, Humberto is forced to face his own demons while simultaneously fighting a powerful ecclesiastical institution to which he once belonged.
