A tale of interracial love told with spare dialogue and beautiful direction
20 April 2010 | by BinkconnSee all my reviews

Writer/Director Ilana Lapid's captivating short concerns the love between New Mexico rancher Lynn (Jessica Spotts) and immigrant ranchhand Octavio (Gabriel Rivera), until a tragic accident involving her grandfather forces her to choose where her class loyalties lie. With an economy of dialogue, Lapid deftly conveys the relationships between the principals and little nuances that bind them together, and James DeFazio's crisp, hand-held cinematography gives a visceral feel to the harsh yet beautiful New Mexico landscape of their daily lives. A favorite at numerous festivals and surely deserving of an Oscar nomination for Best Short, "Red Mesa" is not to be missed.
