A gorgeous and moving trilogy of migration and loss, X500 follows Maria, a Filipino woman recently transplanted to Montreal, David, a man from the countryside who moves to Mexico City, and Alex, a Colombian fisherman unable to disentangle his business from the criminals that control commerce in his region.

This second feature from Colombia’s Juan Andrés Arango (La Playa DC) dexterously navigates its trio of narrative threads, which unfold in such different worlds and yet are unified by aspiration, violence and personal transformation. X500 is an ambitious work of curiosity and compassion. Arango acknowledges the legitimacy of his characters’ fears, while still angling for hope.
