Abstract:

"In this provocative documentary film, director Rodrigo Reyes reimagines the Mexico/U.S. border as a mythical place comparable to Dante's purgatory. Leaving politics aside, he takes a fresh look at the brutal beauty of the border and the people caught in its spell. Shot during a 4-week roadtrip in a dilapidated van with a crew of only three people, Reyes had captured a stunning mosaic of compelling characters and broken landscapes that live on the US-Mexico border, crafting a devastating reflection on the flaws of human nature and the powerful absurdities of the modern world."--Container.
