BELIZE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

TRAGIC JUNGLE, a dramatic suspense film from award winning Mexican director, Yulene Olaizola, is looking for Belizean actors for her 5th film in Belize City this weekend - April 13-15. Filming locations include the forest/ jungle area near the south of the state of Quintana Roo in Mexico and along the Belizean / Mexican border of the Rio Hondo as well as Chetumal and Bacalar. Production is currently scheduled for Oct. / November 2018 by the Production Team of Rubén Imaz, Pablo Zimbón, Yulene Olaizola and the Production Company Malacosa Cine - Varios Lobos (México) You can contact them at malacosacine@gmail.com for more information.

SYNOPSIS.
Two beautiful women Agnes (20) and Florence (27), are running away from Belize. They enter the jungle, crossing over the Río Hondo that marks the border with Mexico. But their pursuer finds them; only Agnes survives and runs off into the Mexican jungle. Days later, a group of Mexican chicleros (gum workers) find Agnes lying unconscious and they take her to their camp. Her presence produces tension among the men, who have been working in the jungle for eight months. One by one they fall under Agnes’s allure, and mysterious fatalities ensue; one chiclero plummets from a zapote tree, one falls sick with malaria, and another is eaten by ants. Only one Mayan chiclero suspects Agnes; according to a Mayan legend, a beautiful woman seduces men in the jungle and then causes their death.
