From Insolito Film Festival. The term "Latin American action cinema" may sound contradictory to many, even almost utopian; or at least that is how it seemed until the arrival of Ernesto Díaz Espinoza, who since his first film, "Kiltro", and throughout an extensive filmography, has given a fair place to genre cinema in our region. His cinema draws from many sources: martial arts, superheroes in "Mirageman", or exploitation flicks in "Mandrill" or "Bring me the Head of the Machine Gun Woman". But these films go beyond mere tribute; They are also due to the characteristics and idiosyncrasies of his country. A reinterpretation of certain elements closer to the Latin American feeling. This is how Díaz Espinoza's universe - one of cool criminals, fierce fighters, and women at arms - becomes one that operates under his own rules, a genre on its own. A talent worth discovering under a flurry of kicks and punches or a hail of bullets.
