Synopsis

Somewhere in Mexico, a man smuggles a girl on top of a train with the name of ‘La Bestia’, injuring his leg in the process. As the train journey continues and the two travelers start to share sweet moments of friendship, the man’s injury begins to affect the way he views the train, seeing it morph into a terrifying monster hurtling towards its destination. Will the two of them make it to the end of their journey in one piece? Creatively animated, ‘La Bestia’ is a gripping road movie that explores themes of immigration and responsibility – the credits dedicate the film “to everyone looking for an opportunity”.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
