Directed by Nicolás Pereda
In his most recent film, director Nicolás Pereda layers incidents and interviews, fiction and non-fiction into a spellbinding portrait of a rural Mexican town. Teresa grapples with depression after her husband leaves her; her son, just returned from the army, succumbs to boredom and violence; and a local girl’s death is blamed on a boy, nicknamed “Goliath.” Throughout, tensions personal and political roil the heavy summer air.
