In response to the current crisis, Ragtag Cinema has — alongside theaters and businesses across the world — temporarily closed its doors. Filmmakers and distributors, too, have had to put their long-awaited releases on hold. During this time, we are doing everything we can to continue engaging our audiences and celebrating cinema.
Our friends at Magnolia Pictures have partnered with us to present a virtual theatrical experience. Together, we are proud to present The Whistlers. Help support Magnolia Pictures, the filmmakers, and your local independent cinema. We will be running it just like our regular Ragtag programming — new films run Friday through Thursday — and when a film's run is over, it's gone! So don't hesitate to see it now.
Not everything is as it seems for Cristi, a policeman who plays both sides of the law. Embarking with the beautiful Gilda on a high-stakes heist, both will have to navigate the twists and turns of corruption, treachery and deception... all while learning and using an ancient island whistling language.
Nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.
