“Adventurous, ambitious and ingeniously futuristic, "Sleep Dealer" is a welcome surprise. It combines visually arresting science fiction done on a budget with a strong sense of social commentary in a way that few films attempt, let alone achieve.“ – The Los Angeles Times

A Sundance award-winning sci-fi thriller, Sleep Dealer is the story of Memo Cruz (Luis Fernando Peña), a young man in near-future Mexico in a world marked by closed borders, corporate warriors, and a global computer network. When his family is victim of a misguided drone attack he finds himself with no option but to head north, towards the U.S./Mexico border. But migrant workers cannot cross this new world border – it's been sealed off. Memo's search for a better future leads him two others who risk their lives to connect, break through the barriers of technology, and unseal their fates.
