Scripted by Daniel (BELIEVERS) Noah, here’s the official synopsis for festival fave CAMINO:
“Set in 1985, war photographer Avery Taggert (Zoë Bell, Tarantino regular from DEATH PROOF and THE HATEFUL EIGHT) 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 of TIMECRIMES), 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.”
