International Shorts: Mexico

  • 75 mins

The future of Mexican cinema is in good hands.

We have brought together the hottest new talents from Mexico for your viewing pleasure. The common themes linking the films in this selection are movement and stasis. Protagonists abandon rural poverty, pass through Mexico City or chase mysterious women across the globe. Others are stuck in noir-ish nightmare, surreal bourgeois domesticity, or dead-end immigrant employment. In these seven films everything changes, yet everything stays the same.
