Julian Hernandez explores the thin dividing line between love and eros while elevating desire to the level of mythic heroism in this grand-scale experimental drama. As Meche (Clarisa Rendon) drifts through an unforgiving urban landscape, she discovers Ryo (Guillermo Villegas), a handsome man with whom she feels an immediate connection, and they make their way through a rainstorm to his flat, where they consummate their new love. Elsewhere in the city, a number of men frequent a shabby movie theater where they search for companionship. Ryo visits the theater one evening and is drawn to Kieri (Jorge Becerra); they come together with a joy that transcends shame, but this breaks the heart of Tari (Javier Olivan), who worships Ryo from afar. In a jealous rage, Tari kills Ryo and hides his body in a cave, and when Kieri realizes his lover is gone, he sets out to find him, with the help of a mystical guide (Giovanna Zacarias). Rabioso sol, rabioso cielo (aka Raging Run, Raging Sky) was an official selection at the 2009 Berlin International Film Festival, where it received the Teddy Award, given to the year's outstanding gay or lesbian themed film.
