To Kill a Man
Alejandro Fernandez Almendras
Alejandro Fernández Almendras has worked as a film critic, photographer, and journalist. His feature films are Huacho (09), By the Fire (11) and To Kill a Man (14).
Based on a true story, this captivating, eerily austere drama follows a family man who falls victim to local thugs who rob him, humiliate him, and wind up shooting his son. When over time the police fail to mitigate his assailants’ threat, our mild-mannered protagonist resolves to take matters into his own hands.
