Mexico's unspoken racism
7 September 2019 | by drovocaSee all my reviews

Uneven but nonetheless worthwhile. Besides some surprising acting and the Sonora's desert deathly beauty, this film's unquestionable merit is uncovering an buried chapter in Mexican history: the sistematic persecution of Chinese immigrants in the 1930s.
