Patricia Riggens debut feature is a tender meditation on the U.S.-Mexico border, underscoring the humanity rather than the politics involved in every choice to cross. In UNDER THE SAME MOON, love is the only thing holding a family together, and it is the only thing keeping them apart. Nine-year-old Carlitos was left in the care of his grandmother in Mexico so his mother could make a better life for them and for herself in Los Angeles. Suddenly alone when his grandmother dies, he can wait no longer for his mother's promises of being together one day. He bravely faces the bewildering border in the hope of finding her, and along the way he discovers friendship, hope, and the meaning of family.

Starring Adrian Alonso, Kate del Castillo, Eugenio Derbez, Maya Zapata and Carmen Salinas, and directed by Patricia Riggens, UNDER THE SAME MOON, a Fox Searchlight Release, opens commercially in San Diego on March 19th.

PLEASE NOTE: UNDER THE SAME MOON is in Spanish with English subtitles.

Rated PG-13 for some mature thematic elements.

Running Time: 109 Minutes
