Written, directed and produced by Lorena Villarreal, Denisse Chapa (producer) and filmed in Zone of Silence and northern Mexico locations, the film brings to life the local tales of strange occurrences that have been happening for decades.
“In addition to the wonderful writing and tale of Silencio, I was also excited to work with Lorena as the director.
