1. La Espera (The Wait)
US, MEXICO | 19 MIN | 2016
A quietist exploration on the way fear shapes the contour of spaces, La Espera (The Wait) portrays at once the straits of immigrant life and the haunting soundscape of reprieve.

2. Por Qué el Recuerdo? (The Solitude of Memory)
US, MEXICO | 20 MIN | DOCUMENTARY | 2014
Through a metaphorical dialogue between formal aspects and characters, The Solitude of Memory elicits a profound meditation on memory and grief. José’s son, Nando, has committed suicide and José repeatedly runs through the final words that he spoke to him. José continues his life without his son, keeping him alive through remembrance in this personal and poetic film.

3. Las Nubes
MEXICO | 21 MIN | DOCUMENTARY | 2017
In the rural Mexican town of Las Nubes, an anonymous rancher recounts how the local cartel terrorized his life and made it too dangerous to see his daughter.

Screenings will be held at The Grand Cinema.
