In Gravity, Sandra Bullock was forced to survive in outer space. In Desierto, Gael García Bernal has to escape the Sonora desert, where a vigilante who has set out to defend the United States from Mexican immigrants trying to cross the border decides to pursue him, rifle in hand, and with an unrestrained rabid dog. Jonás Cuarón turns this dusty thriller into a horror film.
Born in Mexico and studied at Vassar College. Among others, he was screenwriter for Gravity (13) and directed the short The Shock Doctrine (07), written with Naomi Klein, and feature films Year of the Nail (07) and Desierto.
