Storyline

Juan Carlos Rulfo, the son of the acclaimed Mexican writer and photographer Juan Rulfo (1917 - 1986), travels to the plains of Jalisco in search of his father. He gathers the scarce memories of the inhabitants, who seem to remember little, if anything, about Juan. This documentary explores the roots of a forgotten Mexico, while the scarce memory remnants shared form a poetic collage of a rural and national exploration of the past. Written by Edgar Cochran

Simply Great

This movie reflects the Mexico we've forgotten. It reflects the love mexican people has for living and loving. It has great Photography art-work and you can know a bit more of Juan Rulfo's life. The bottom line is that you've got to see this movie. if you want to learn how's the "other" Mexico and maybe you'll understand its inheritance.
