For his first foray in horror, Bellott (Tu Me Manques, an official selection of our 36th edition) follows the footsteps of horror masters of Dario Argento and Mario Bava to tell the story of Lebanese American journalist Amir and his boyfriend Amat who visit a town in Bolivia that is being threatened by an oil company. Amat suddenly starts to see visions of a giant blood red ox; as Amir tries to save him from these paranoid attacks, he begins to wonder if he is also losing his mind. The first film in a projected trilogy, Blood-Red Ox will take viewers on an intense hallucinogenic trip to the heart of madness.


En su primera incursión al cine de terror, Bellott (Tu Me Manques, selección oficial de la edición número 36 del Festival) sigue los pasos de los maestros Dario Argento y Mario Bava para contar la historia de Amir, un periodista libanés-estadounidense, y su novio Amat quienes visitan un pueblo de Bolivia amenazado por una compañía petrolera. Amat comienza a tener visiones de un gigantesco buey color rojo sangre. A medida que Amir intenta salvarlo de estos ataques paranóicos, comienza a preguntarse si él también está perdiendo la cordura. El primer capítulo de una posible trilogía, Blood-Red Ox transportará a los espectadores en un intenso viaje alucinógeno al corazón de la locura.
