Cine Mexicano Kicks Off January with Race of Death Forbidden Love Story

West Palm Beach, FL –  Cine Mexicano starts 2019 with a bang, debuting a diverse menu of action, crime, drama and romantic films directed by renown directors Alfonso Ortiz Lara and Rodolfo Rodriguez. These high-quality releases solidify Cine Mexicano as the country’s prime, Spanish-language movie network. Cine Mexicano’s vision is to always feature contemporary and commercial-free programming, including rancheras, comedies and action dramas.

The month begins with Alfonso Ortiz Lara’s romantic action drama Carrera a Muerte (Race of Death). Carrera a Muerte tells the story of two brothers by adoption who fall in love with the same mysterious woman.
