'Words with Gods' at Los Cabos International Film Festival

Words with

will be presented at the Los Cabos International Film Festival’s Galas Program, Friday, November 14th.

Alonso Aguilar-Castillo, Director of Los Cabos International Film Fest, says, “The Festival is an encounter dedicated to a shared vision
between Mexico, the U.S. and Canada. During our Third Edition through a thoughtful and inspiring program, Los Cabos will be the perfect
scenario to present the film Words with Gods“.

Consisting of 9 short films created by some of the most celebrated directors of the moment, each tells a story where faith plays a central
role. A dramatic spectrum of cultures with each director creating a dialogue with what is closest to them through their shorts.
Mexican filmmaker Guillermo Arriaga directed the story “Gods Blood”,
as well as being the creator of the concept on which the film is based; he is one of the producers along with Alex García and Lucas Akoskin. His take on
atheism, “God’s Blood” sent a shiver of recognition down our spines when we previewed it at the Careyes Film Festival earlier this year.

The order of the short films in ” Words with Gods” was curated by Peruvian writer, Mario Vargas Llosa and the music was
created by British musician, Peter Gabriel.

“I am very happy to be a part of Los Cabos International Film Festival with this project. I believe this is currently one of the most important
festivals, with more interest from entrepreneurs and the media. The synergy achieved with this project is very interesting and has reached
enormous levels of expectation”, said the film’s producer, Alex Garcia.
Alex Garcia himself is one of Mexico’s most prolific producers. To be able to speak with him at Los Cabos will be one of my most unforgettable experiences.
In addition, Los Cabos International Film Festival Third Edition’s Mexican Tribute will be dedicated to Guillermo Arriaga.
