  • Purgatorio: A Journey into the Heart of the Border

    2013. USA/Mexico. Directed by Rodrigo Reyes. This compelling and provocative meditation on the Mexico/U.S. border presents the area as a Dante-esque place—beautiful, compelling, and brutal. In caméra-stylo (cinematographic and essayistic) fashion, a mosaic of characters and their actions present the flaws and the beauty of human nature and experience. 80 min.
