Five years before shooting "I Forgot, I Don't Remember", Juan Carlos Rulfo films in the south of Jalisco this 30 minutes medium-length movie about his dead grandfather Juan Nepomuceno Pérez (Juan Rulfo's father).
As is known, the murder of his father greatly affected Juan Rulfo's life and inspired him to write "Pedro Páramo" and "El llano en llamas", two of the best Mexican books of the 20th century.
Juan Carlos Rulfo superbly portrays the life of people who hear the whispers of a past life before death.
"I think the world will never end. Because when I was about eight years, one day, once in Apulco, my mom rolled us up in two mats because that day was going to end the world. The father told us. And it was all bullshit, there we woke up, sleepless and praying, praying and praying, waiting for the stroke, and anything finished. It was more than seventy years ago and look!" -fragment from the film.
