1391/2012. Afghanistan/Mexico. Directed by Mario Garcia Torres. Tea is an essay film documenting an artistic gesture surrounding Alighiero Boetti’s One Hotel in Kabul, Afghanistan. What does it mean to return to a place while visiting it for the first time? How a guest can become a host due to a years-late arrival? How far, really, is Afghanistan from Mexico? These questions, as they pertain to the relationship between Boetti and Mario Garcia Torres, are considered in the film. In Dari, English, Spanish; English subtitles. 64 min.

In conjunction with the exhibition Alighiero Boetti: Game Plan
