Since MISS BALA’s extraordinary debut at the Cannes Film Festival, Gerardo Naranjo has been heralded as a major talent. The Official Mexican Oscar ® entry in the Best Foreign Language Film category, MISSBALA has enjoyed an illustrious festival run that includes – in addition to Cannes – the Toronto International Film Festival, the London Film Festival, and the New York Film Festival.
MISS BALA tells the story of Laura, a young woman whose aspirations of becoming a beauty queen turn against her, delivering her into the hands of a gang that’s terrorizing northern Mexico. Although Laura succeeds in winning the beauty queen crown, her experiences as an unwilling participant in Mexico’s violent drug war leave her shaken and transformed.
