Winner of LA Film Fest MUSE Award for Los Angeles Movie Damian John Harper Interviews and Gives Advice!

The perilous ambitions for a better life weigh heavy on the youth of a Zapotec community in rural Oaxaca. Young Mateo plans to raise money for the coyote who will smuggle him across the border and ingratiates himself with the local gang, seeking protection on the other side. Yet when his conscience catches up with him, not even the fearless mothers of their agrarian village can protect him. Forced to gather his courage and embark on a suicidal journey, Mateo’s goal becomes less a physical destination and more a dangerous rite of passage.

Los Ángeles - On the Field

Damian John Harper’s directorial debut subverts the conventions of the gang genre and transcends the ethnographic approach by knitting together the multiple perspectives of his diverse characters, who are magnetically played by non-actors.
