The trailer has released for the acclaimed Sundance film Blast Beat, about a Colombian family who face struggles after emigrating to the US.

Esteban Arango’s acclaimed Sundance film Blast Beat, has dropped its trailer ahead of a May release in the US. No UK release details have been announced yet but a wider launch is expected to follow imminently.

Arango’s film, set in 2000, follows the fortunes of a Colombian family immigrating to the United States. It has received praise on the festival circuit and is set for a theatrical release in the US in May.

The film is a coming of age movie set against the backdrop of metal culture at the turn of the century. Wilmer Valderrrama, star of That ’70s Show, is one of the film’s cast and spoke to Collider about why the project spoke to him, stating “two-thirds of what happened to this family happened to mine. My family sold everything they had, we came to the United States. [Arango] described it as a time where technology wasn’t around, and it was very expensive to keep in touch with your loved ones back home. You had to almost subliminally cut ties in many ways. I think my family did that. They sold everything they had, and we were kind of alone to try to start from scratch […] I think this story hits all of those pillars, checks all of those boxes.”

Ahead of details regarding a UK launch, be sure to check out the trailer below.
