The Tale of King Crab

Opens Friday, June 24!

"Watching THE TALE OF KING CRAB feels like watching the stories on which all later stories have been based." - Screen Daily

"A work of genuine cinematic imagination and power." - Film Festival Today

"Profound... [the film] owes its existence to a really good story, a little exaggeration, and the enthusiastic consumption of alcohol." - Screen Slate

Luciano is a wandering outcast in a remote, late 19th-century Italian village. His life becomes undone by alcohol, forbidden love, and a bitter conflict with the prince of the region over the right of passage through an ancient gateway. When the quarrel escalates, Luciano is exiled to the distant Argentine province of Tierra del Fuego where, with the help of ruthless gold-diggers, he searches for a mythical treasure, paving his way toward redemption. However, in these barren lands, only greed and insanity can prevail.
