Mexican immigrant returns home to a small mountain village in Guerrero after
years of working in the U.S., struggling to rebuild his family and follow his
dreams of starting a band, the Copa Kings. For Pedro, whether consoling the
grieving mother of a friend who died inexplicably “over there,” or meeting a
new nephew being raised by extended family because his parents have emigrated
to the U.S., that place – the “Allá” of the title – somehow
always feels very present, practically knocking at the door. This winner of the
International Critics’ Week Grand Prize at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival is,
says Los Angeles Times film critic Amy Nicholson, “driven more by mood
than plot, as the pressures fated to force Pedro to abandon his family again
are so large and hazy that they’re almost impossible to see until they’re
insurmountable.” Presented in conjunction with Hispanic Heritage Month.
