THE THIN YELLOW LINE, the latest new-talent push by Cannes jury member Guillermo del Toro (best known for directing ‘Pacific Rim’, writing ‘The Hobbit’ saga and being associate producer in ‘Biutiful’) is brought onto the market at Cannes by LATIDO FILMS.
This film follows five men hired to paint a yellow line on a lonely road joining two long-forgotten Mexican towns. They will acknowledge that there is a thin line between right and wrong; between laughter and crying; between life and death…
Directed by Celso García, this mexican film has won Audience Award, Special Jury Prize and Best Script at the FICG (Guadalajara International Film Festival). As a road movie, it’s a departure from the auteur genre movies Del Toro makes and produces outside the U.S.
