First Real Trailer for Guillermo Arriaga's The Burning Plain
The first international trailer for the directorial debut of 21 Grams screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga has debuted. His film is called The Burning Plain, and similar to Babel, it's an ensemble piece about with a two-tiered storyline concerning a mother and daughter who try to form a bond again later in their lives. I've heard a considerable amount about this film - it played at the Venice, Toronto, Glasgow, and Seattle Film Festivals - but I still haven't ever seen it. I keep passing up opportunities because I've only ever heard mediocre things. But it will be out in theaters in September, so check out the trailer if you so desire.

The Burning Plain is both written and directed by Mexican filmmaker Guillermo Arriaga, who worked with and wrote Alejandro González Iñárritu's trilogy of Amores Perros, 21 Grams, and Babel, as well as the screenplays for The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada and The Night Buffalo. The film first premiered at the Venice Film Festival late last year and has played at other major film festivals ever since then. Magnolia Pictures will be bringing The Burning Plain to very limited theaters starting on September 18th this year.
