XLrator Media, the up-and-coming distribution company behind “Jimi: All Is By My Side” and “The Machine,” has acquired U.S. distribution rights to “Camino,” an action-thriller starring Quentin Tarantino-regular Zoë Bell and filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo. Fully financed and produced by Bleiberg Entertainment, the film will be released in early 2016 on XLrator’s Turbo action label.

The film’s official synopsis reads: “Set in 1985, war photographer Avery Taggert (Zoë Bell) has built a solid career with her stark and honest imagery, all the while remaining emotionally distant from her subjects. When she embeds in the jungles of Colombia with a squad of missionaries led by a beloved and charismatic Spaniard known as ‘El Guero’ (Nacho Vigalondo), she finds herself in the middle of a conflict as violent as any she’s photographed. One night, she happens upon El Guero committing a heinous atrocity, capturing the vile act on film, an image with the potential to discredit and destroy El Guero. Knowing this brilliant psychopath will employ every tactic at his disposal to destroy that photograph – and the photographer who took it – Avery flees into the harsh jungle with nothing but the camera hanging around her neck to escape from missionaries twisted into violent guerrillas by the madman intent on destroying all enemies.”

The film is written by Daniel Noah and directed by Josh C. Waller, who previously directed Bell on “Raze.” Bleiberg Entertainment and Blue Box International will be handling international sales at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
