Mexico 2017, 20 min, Spanish, Hebrew & English subtitles
Time tends to blur in the Mexican town of Las Nubes (“The Clouds”), but the night when the protagonist had to smuggle his daughter out of the cartel’s reach is crystal-clear in his memory. A Mexican farmer dares to talk about life under the cartel’s thumb—a life shaped by fear.
