Dir. by Helmut Dosantos. 2022. 97 min. No dialogue. Free and open to the public.

With visually stunning landscapes and immersive sound, this film is a poetic survey of the vast landscapes and rich diversity of several communities of rural Mexico. Using richly saturated color and hypnotic black-and-white interludes, filmmaker Helmut Dosantos takes viewers through salt pans, deserts, highlands, jungle, and underground mines-paying tribute to those who fight to preserve their cultural identity amidst the shadows of modernization.
