El Planeta is a dark comedy exploring contemporary poverty, female desire, and the always complicated filial relationships of mothers and daughters.

A daughter forced to return home after the death of her father, reconnects with her eccentric mother, hustling to maintain the semblances of their middle-class lifestyle in the face of an impending eviction. Over the course of the week, we watch as the daughter’s hopes are tested as she attempts to use her sexuality as a means of escape. Meanwhile the mother grifts her way to certain security — the care of a jail cell.

Reviews

El Planeta is refreshingly original in its rethinking of the grifter film, adding humor but never sacrificing its humanity.
- Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, AWFJ Women on Film
A mumblecore gem from a new cinematic voice.
