Amidst the picturesque scenery of a seaside town, a young woman befriends a middle-aged hotel caretaker. Artificial Paradise, the sophomore feature film from Mexican director Yulene Olaizola, concerns the fragile relationships formed around solitude and substance abuse.

“This is a film of striking juxtapositions of opulent nature and pared-down humanity.”
Ronnie Scheib
