    • Synopsis
    • Miguel is a grizzled, tequila swilling, human smuggler never far from death. Dodging helicopters, drug-traffickers and border patrol, he ferries desperate migrants across the river. His passengers think he is charmed because of his unblemished record, but the locals call him Maldito, because he is cursed, caught between the living and the dead.

      When a mysterious girl arrives claiming to be his daughter, and a local gangster demands he reveals his secret routes across the wilderness, Miguel must grapple with a past he cannot remember and a life littered with corpses.

      The Boatman weaves drama, suspense, and mystery into a gripping meditation on death and identity, all heightened by the stylized cinematography, supernatural undertones and Miguel’s haunting voiceover.
