Screening of _Jesus Shows You the Way to the Highway_ directed by Miguel Llansó as part of the New Movie Cinemas cycle at the Octopus Film Festival 2019.
The director created the most bizarre mix of thriller, comedy, action movie and science fiction cinema. Jesus shows you the way to the Highway tells about CIA agents who are tasked with destroying a computer virus called the “Soviet Union”, but they fall into a trap set by enemies. What happens next, has something of afrofuturism, something from the exploitation cinema and a lot of narcotic trip. This Spanish-Estonian-Ethiopian-Latvian-Romanian film concoction, however, works so unpredictably that the only way to describe it is to experience it on its own.
