Tempestad

Storyline

“Nightmarish stories intertwine with dreamy visuals to create an unsettling, and strangely entrancing, film in “Tempestad”…. artful and lyrical”-NY Times

 

“Twin stories of broken Mexican lives, exquisitely told…This powerful, luminously shot documentary pairs the tales of a woman jailed for years by a criminal cartel, and of another, whose daughter was kidnapped…Tatiana Huezo’s exquisite documentary speaks painful truths but is worth every minute…. Luminous cinematography and a plangent but sparingly used score buttress the powerfully composed storytelling.” Leslie Felperin, The Guardian

 

“One of the Best Films of the year! The stories of two women whose lives were nearly destroyed by the corruption of the Mexican government and its systemic collusion with the drug cartels are told almost entirely in voice-over. A stunningly specific exposé.” Amy Taubin, ArtForum
