LA LLORONA
Golden Globe® Nominee coming to DVD and Blu-Ray March 2nd, 2021

One of the most talked about movies of last year is finally coming out on physical release on March 2nd.



LA LLORONA was recently nominated for Golden Globe Awards for Best Motion Picture, Foreign Language and is Guatemala’s Official Entry for 2021 Academy Award® consideration for Best International Feature Film. LA LLORONA will be releasedon Digital HD on March 2, 2021.



LA LLORONA blends together the terror of both myth and reality into a devastating exposé of the genocidal atrocities against the Mayan community in Guatemala. Through a modern retelling of the classic Latin American legend, LA LLORONA forces a reckoning with not-so-distant crimes which should not have been forgotten. Following a premiere at the 2019 Venice Film Festival where the film won Best Film (Venice Days), LA LLORONA has had an impressive festival tour with appearances at TIFF, Sundance and BFI. The film is being celebrated as a true depiction of Latino culture.



At first glance I wasn’t a big fan of this take on La Llorona, but now I have time to take another glance at it and hopefully will have another outlook on it. I’m just glad there are Genre films being nominated this year.
