Espiral

Jorge Perez Solano (Mexico, 2008). 99min

 




Thanks to the CONSULADO GENERAL DE MEXICO EN RALEIGH.

Santiago is back in the village he left nearly twenty years before. He was in love with Diamantina but he was poor and her family did not let them marry. So he went to the North looking for money and a better life. When he comes back years later, Diamantina is pregnant from another man who agreed with her father to kidnap her. Disempowered and not able to reconcile his past and present, Santiago leaves his village again. Jorge Perez Solano recognizes he has grown under the influence of Emilio Fernandez, Luis Buñuel and the muralist movement. He even wanted to make a tribute to Emilio Fernandez and the actress of the famous movie Pueblerina, Columba Dominguez, who plays the role of Paloma in Espiral.
