Mexican Shorts

  • 90 mins

Diverse and dazzling visions from a vibrant film culture.

Wildly differing in their style and subject matter, but united by a high level of originality and creative confidence, this set of shorts provides a snapshot of emerging talent from one of the world’s coolest cinema scenes. From the raw documentary-style cinema verité of Interview with the Earth, to the uproarious comedy of In the Light of Darkness and the elegant emotional drama of Roma, this is a journey of hectic twists and turns.
