In Amat Escalante’s (HELI) LA REGION SALVAJE, a family unit is dismantled by their discovery of several secrets, including the presence of an extraterrestrial creature that promises to give them innumerable pleasures but with severe consequences.

Young mother Alejandra is a working housewife, raising two boys with husband Angel in a small city. Her brother Fabian works as a nurse in a local hospital. Their provincial lives are upset with the arrival of mysterious Veronica. Sex and love can be fragile in certain regions where strong family values, hypocrisy, homophobia, and male chauvinism exist. Veronica convinces them that in the nearby woods, inside an isolated cabin, dwells something not of this world that could be the answer to all of their problems. Something whose force they cannot resist and with whom they must make peace or suffer its wrath.

Critic Quotes:
“It's bizarre, breathtaking filmmaking, sexy and profound, perfectly entertaining at surface value but with plenty more going on beneath.” — Birth. Movies. Death.
“Plays like an acknowledgement that the hiddenness, the private nature of sexuality is also part of its power.” — The Playlist
“A ferociously individual, highly intelligent piece and a superb, very affecting cast ensure that the human factor remains dominant, however creepily inhuman things may become at times.” — Screen International
