A film showing as part of the Borderlines Film Festival
With a strange and powerful obsession stemming from his childhood during the Mexican Revolution, the affluent bachelor and suave ceramist Archibaldo oscillates effortlessly between fantasy and reality, obsessed in making the perfect crime. But will he succeed?
Written and directed by Luis Buñuel who interlaces this noir with his own sense of humour, this is a story both vicious and hilarious, about the impossibility of fulfilling one’s fantasies and desires, which, in this case, are all about murder.

Borderlines Film Festival 2024 is bigger than ever
Britain’s biggest rural film festival, one of the six largest film festivals in the UK, is set to take place from 1 – 17 March with a record number of screenings and events, just short of 300 in total. Borderlines covers a large area of country with 23 venues across Herefordshire, Shropshire, Malvern and the Marches, from mixed-arts centres and art deco picture palaces to remote village halls.
Supported by the BFI, awarding funds from the National Lottery, the Elmley Foundation and Hereford City Council, Borderlines offers audiences the opportunity to watch some of the very best new releases, including Oscar and BAFTA nominated titles like All of Us Strangers and The Zone of Interest, American Fiction and Anatomy of a Fall (winner of the 2023 Palme d’Or at Cannes).
