2020 Sitges Film Festival film THE OLD WAYS
When Cristina Lopez - a Mexican American reporter - returns to her ancestral homeland of Veracruz chasing a story on witchcraft and faith healers, she becomes the subject of her own story. Kidnapped by a local “bruja” and her son, she’s held against her will for a terrifying reason: they believe she has a demon within her, and won’t let her free until they exorcise the malevolent force … no matter what it takes. As she struggles to make her escape, she slowly comes to believe they may be telling the truth after all. Along with her captors - and estranged cousin Miranda - Cristina’s fight for survival turns into a fight for her soul.
