** New restoration, previously unreleased in the US, and written by none other than Gabriel García Márquez!!! **

Newly restored and never before released in the US, this 1965 Mexican western, written by Gabriel García Márquez and Carlos Fuentes, “… is a stark and fatalistic revenge story set in a small tumbleweed town that follows the final days of a released convict destined to encounter the vengeful wrath of the son whose father’s murder was the cause of his eighteen-year sentence. Anticipating Márquez’s own Chronicle of a Death Foretold, Time to Die reveals machismo as a pernicious cultural heredity, a curse pushing men towards unrelenting violence and sexism.” – Harvard Film Archive

Rarely screened outside of Mexico, where it is now considered a classic directed by a revered writer-director, Time to Die is an undiscovered gem that will be a treat for audiences looking for cinematic journeys far off the beaten track.
