El Mudo Trailer with English Subtitles

It seems like it’s been a really long time since we’ve posted the trailer of a “foreign language” film with English subtitles, but checking up on our pals at Cinencuentro, I was surprised to run into the trailer of El Mudo (transl. The Mute Man), the latest film by the Vega brothers, Diego and Daniel, who made a name for themselves after winning Un Certain Regard at Cannes for their film Octubre.

In El Mudo, they tackle something a lot of Peruvians are familiar with. Our Justice system. And what better way to tackle it than with some dark humor (even more accentuated than in Octubre) as we follow Judge Constantino Zegarra (Fernando Bacilio Sigüenza) whom everyone loves to hate, until the day he’s let go and he starts believing he’s been targeted.

The cast of El Mudo is rounded up by Norka Ramirez, Lidia Rodriguez, Ernesto Raez and Augusto Varillas.
