El Verano de Goliat (Summer of Goliath). 2012. Mexico. Directed by Nicolás Pereda. In Spanish; English subtitles. 78 min.

With Clemencia Alejo, Gabriela Alejo. Pereda’s Summer of Goliath combines documentary and fiction as it intertwines the stories of people living in a small town in rural Mexico. Those people include a woman who believes her husband has left her for another; her soldier son, who hopes that one day he and his soldier partner will be issued machine guns so that they may intimidate passing motorists; and three brothers whose father left them, many years prior, in the care of their mother, who can barely support them.
