El Cielo Rojo is a 2008 independent film from Costa Rica. Written and directed by Miguel Alejandro Gomez, the film stars Allan Obando (Roberto), Mauricio Dapena (Berny), Ricardo Rodriguez (Manuel), and Edgar Roman (Nestor).

The film was shot in the Costa Rican provinces of San Jose, Puntarenas, Guanacaste, and Alajuela; It was shot in 21 days through January 2007 and will be released in early August 2008. The film is a character-driven drama, with a heavy dose of comedy, and could be classified as both a coming-of-age story with political undertones and an art-house film.


Bernie, Manuel, and Nestor just graduated from high school, and have no plans for the future. Unsatisfied with the opportunities Costa Rica presents, the boys decide to concentrate on mundane activities. However, over the course of a few days, key events in the boys' personal lives conspire to make a disinterested lifestyle difficult.

After a break-up with his girlfriend, Bernie reconsiders going to college, in hopes of repairing his relationship. In the midst of an identity crisis brought on by concerned adults, Manuel tries to survive mental confusion.

Bound by revolutionary spirit, the friends must handle their internal conflicts individually and as a group.
