With Raúl Arévalo, Javier Gutiérrez

The Spanish deep South, 1980. A series of brutal murders of adolescent girls in a remote and forgotten town bring together two disparate characters – both detectives in the homicide division – to investigate the cases. With deep divisions in their ideology, detectives Juan and Pedro must put aside their differences if they are to successfully hunt down a killer who for years has terrorized a community in the shadow of a general disregard for women rooted in a misogynistic past. From the creators of Unit 7, Marshland is the new thrilling movie by talented director Alberto Rodriguez, who surprised us with Unit 7 and 7 Virgins.

Press

“Marshland is noirishly tense on different levels, its tight focus on character, its realism, it’s sense of place and its social critique adding up to a grippingly intense whole — and that’s not to mention it’s satisfyingly twisting plot line.”Hollywood Reporter
