World Premiere of Mystico Fantastico

MaryaMurphy says: MYSTICO FANTASTICO: clever, charming and imaginative. I'm a sucker for idylls. Nice use of color, music, mythos.

earthcritter says: Mystico Fantastico is what its title says. That's a fine line to walk. The low- budget look helps (unusual). Story & acting: yep!

@LetyO: 'Mystico Fantastico'. A compelling story about discovering one's self. Culturally connected by clever narration.

@suzanneyada: Saw Mystico Fantastico w/ @jasmineduarte at @cinequest. It was indeed fantastico. The director was there & said it cost only about $20k

Plot Outline

A woman named Louise and a doll in a red dress are washed ashore in a remote village somewhere in the south of Mexico. She may or may not be a disgruntled hippie dropping out, a bride suffering extended cold feet or a failed Ponzi schemer seeking solace in the ocean, but no one, including herself has any idea.

Louise responds to her new surroundings with a coma-like stare. But when her Mexican nightmare refuses to cease and desist, she has no choice but to engage with her new environment.

And through mainlining alcohol poisoning, hallucinations, music, the creepy voodoo doll, lust, friendship and a coconut milk shower, Louise becomes humble before the mysteries of life.

The woman from the sea recognizes that home is no longer located in the republic of solitude but in the simple act of letting the world in and allowing for possibilities she had never, until now, dreamt of.
