CHRONICLES OF A WANDERING SAINT Trailer: SXSW Winner & Independent Spirit Awards Nominee Arrives This Month


Following a festival run last year and a trio of Independent Spirit Award nominations (including Best First Feature), Tomás Gómez Bustillo’s debut feature Chronicles of a Wandering Saint is finally arriving this June from Hope Runs High Film. The supernatural comedy premiered at SXSW 2023 where it won the Adam Yauch Hörnblowér Award. Set in an Argentinian village, it follows a devout Catholic woman who stages a miracle to become a modern-day saint. It stars Monica Villa and Horacio Anibal Marassi.

It will open at NYC’s IFC Center on Friday, June 28 with opening weekend filmmaker Q&As, followed by LA at the Lumiere on July 5, San Francisco on July 19 at The Roxie, and other key U.S. cities to follow.

Here’s the official synopsis:

In a tiny rural village in Argentina, Rita Lopez, a pious yet insatiably competitive woman, decides that staging a miracle could be her ticket to sainthood. After discovering a lost statue in the back room of her chapel, she convinces her neglected but loving husband to help her orchestrate the grand reveal that will finally anoint her as the most admired woman in town. But before the unveiling, a jarring turn of events illuminates the hidden magic of her world, forcing her to reevaluate everything she once took for granted.

Check out the trailer and poster below.
