Director

Everardo González

Mexico / 2017 / 74 minutes / DCP

A stark and powerful indictment of the kidnapping culture that has devastated Mexico. González presents the testimonies of victims, kidnappers and enforcers in long takes that allow emotions and doubts to surface – yet he constrains speakers and viewers by the eerie flesh-colored masks that cover much of the onscreen faces, not so much concealing as focusing us on words, eyes, lips and the sheer agonies, confusion and even regrets and triumphs of this destructive cultural scenario.
