American actor Willem Dafoe (a member of the experimental theater company The Wooster Group, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his roles as Elias in Oliver Stone’s Platoon (1986) and Max Schreck in the comedy-horror film Shadow of the Vampire), stated he is currently enjoying his stay in Real del Catorce, San Luis Potosí, where he is filming the Mexican film “Opus Cero”.
The famed actor agreed to star in “Opus Cero” where he will play a music composer based in Real del Catorce, San Luis Potosí, in Central Mexico.
“Opus Cero” is directed by British director Daniel Graham, where Dafoe plays a music composer that, after the death of his father, arrives to Real del Catorce, a former mining village neighboring with a sacred “huichol” site, to complete the end of a symphony written by a Norweigan composer.
Mexican actresses Irene Azuela and Casandra Ciangherotti also participate in the film produced by Julio Chavezmontes (Halley, 2012) and Cannes Best Director Award winner Carlos Reygadas (Post Tenebras Lux, 2012).
