Luis Gerardo Méndez,
A surrealistic documentary portrait of the region of Las Hurdes, a remote region of Spain where civilisation has barely developed, showing how the local peasants try to survive without even the most basic utilities and skills.
A Claustrophobic experience which involves a Mexican middle class family into the atrocities made by wild and heartless army forces whose main objective seems to be students who do not permit the 1968's Olimpic games' to develop normally.
I rate this collection of short films very good. The grouping displays the diverse points of view in Mexican contemporary filmmakers...I viewed at Vistas Film Festival in Dallas...nice discussion with a director about his contribution and the concept of the film...worth watching if you love film for the art of filmmaking...not a film about revolution per se but a celebration of the revolution in filmmaking on the anniversary of a political revolution...
The film is constructed of ten short films, (peliculas cortos), each directed by a Mexican filmmaker. According to the discussion at Vistas, the filmmakers were left to their own devises. The project was funded by the Mexican government without interference...commercial funding was also provided. Eash film is unique. There is no central theme other than contemporary Mexican filmmaking on display. A great introduction to the directors and their art.
