The Irishman to Open the 8th Los Cabos Film Festival
Los Cabos International Film Festival announced Martin Scorsese’s highly anticipated crime drama The Irishman will open the 8th edition of the Festival. The film’s Latin American premiere will be held at the Pabellón Cultural de la República in Cabo San Lucas on November 13.
Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci star in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.
Scorsese’s new film, a reflection on hidden ties between organized crime and American political elites, was filmed by the Mexican cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto who was honored in 2016 with the Festival’s Tribute in recognition of his work in cinematography.
“We are proud to present the Latin American premiere of The Irishman, the recent film from one of the most influential filmmakers in World Cinema and to collaborate with Netflix to have this emblematic work on the Festival’s screens and in Los Cabos. ”– Maru Garzón, Artistic Director & Alejandra Paulín, Executive Director of the Festival.
The Festival, which runs from November 13-17, is a long-standing platform to showcase cutting-edge, thoughtful and inspiring films of both emerging talents and established filmmakers and seeks to promote creative and socially diverse content.
Los Cabos International Film Festival’s audience will enjoy and be the first in Latin America to watch one of this year’s most anticipated films before its release in theaters in Mexico on November 15 and on Netflix on November 27.
