Director Biography – Alejandro Cabrera (THE SLEEP OF RIGHTEOUS)

B334d67297 headshot

Alejandro Cabrera, Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Seville, is a Spanish filmmaker based in Mexico where he currently freelances as a reader and script-doctor. He also collaborates with the prestigious Museum of Contemporary Art of Monterrey (Mexico) where he teaches workshops on Screenwriting and Film Grammar.

As a filmgoer he loves all film genres, but as a filmmaker he is often drawn to Crime Dramas and Thrillers of every kind.

Director Statement

From the beginning “The Sleep of the Righteous” was thought as a genre film. However, the underlying issue comes from a very real everyday drama in Mexico: the high rate of crime impunity and the widespread sense of defenselessness of citizens before criminals due to the lack of sufficient judges and police officers. All that combined with a generalized distrust in the authorities seemed to me fertile ground for the emergence of acts of frontier justice, with the inherent perils that this could entail.
