The Trigger’s Cult  – A 360° Experience by de José Celestino Campusano

afiche-la-secta-del-gatillo-WEBFINALThe Trigger’s Cult is an immersive film that addresses the naturalization of violence and judicial and police corruption in certain police stations in the Buenos Aires suburbs. The famous journalist, Ricardo Ragendorfer, specialized in police matters, and the renowned film director and producer, José Celestino Campusano, come together in a Transmedia project focused on putting into crisis each and every one of the resources of traditional cinema.



Méndez is a veteran street chief of a police station in the Buenos Aires suburbs, Pocholo is a dysfunctional young man infiltrated in neighborhood mafias, the relationship of collaboration and contempt that unites them begins to enter crisis when Pocholo establishes an alliance with Papito, a young pimp inexperienced arrived from Córdoba, this fact plus an unexpected diagnosis about Méndez’s health go to resignify the present state of things in a dizzying way in the deepest sectors of this rural area.
