Tiger’s Son

Directed by: Edwin Cortes
Country: Colombia
Genre: Western
With: Juan Sebastian Calero, Mónica Lopera



Bronson is a triggerman that sees himself as a being predestined for death and violence. Inside his unique imagination he thinks he’s the direct descendant of a bloody bandit and that’s what gives him his reason to live. He’ll face the brutal vengeance of a corrupt ex-police officer, while at the same time running away with his boss’ mistress, for whom he holds a secret and deep attraction. ‘Hijo de Tigre’ is an urban western, in which the protagonist lives in a constant duality between his deepest longings and the natural fatality of his lineage.

Director’s vision

Tiger’s Son’ is a movie that wants to challenge the way these types of characters and their criminal world have been portrayed before. It does not pretend to represent reality, but rather to reinterpret a universe that has to do with the world of fiction and adapt it to the western genre with a clear Latin American flavor.
