PURGATORIO at Cinema Village New York
In this provocative documentary film, director and NALIP fellow Rodrigo Reyes re-imagines 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 has 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.
Join us at the Cinema Village in New York, NY for a free screening of Purgatorio. Following the film, Rodrigo Reyes will discuss his work in a live Q&A.
This free screening is made possible by Matson Films, NEA Media Arts and the University of Arizona Hanson Film Institute.
