Stuntwoman extraordinaire and Tarantino alum Zoë Bell has a new film coming soon to the states. Nacho Vigalondo, the filmmaker responsible for the fantastic and underseen Spanish thriller Timecrimes, is attached as an executive-producer and will also be appearing in the film. CAMINO sounds like an intense survival story that takes place deep in the jungles of Columbia. The film will be featured at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival, but already a deal has been made for a stateside release in early 2016. Check out the official synopsis below.
About CAMINO: Set in 1985, war photographer Avery Taggert (Zoë Bell) has built a solid career with her stark and honest imagery, all the while remaining emotionally distant from her subjects. When she embeds in the jungles of Colombia with a squad of missionaries led by a beloved and charismatic Spaniard known as “El Guero” (Nacho Vigalondo), she finds herself in the middle of a conflict as violent as any she’s photographed. One night, she happens upon El Guero committing a heinous atrocity, capturing the vile act on film, an image with the potential to discredit and destroy El Guero. Knowing this brilliant psychopath will employ every tactic at his disposal to destroy that photograph – and the photographer who took it – Avery flees into the harsh jungle with nothing but the camera hanging around her neck to escape from missionaries twisted into violent guerrillas by the madman intent on destroying all enemies.
