TALES OF MEXICO
2016, Various directors, Mexico/Poland, 125 min.
With Irène Jacob, Kaori Momoi
In this omnibus film by eight leading Mexican directors (including Carlos Carrera of THE CRIME OF PADRE AMARO and Ernesto Contreras of I DREAM IN ANOTHER LANGUAGE), a room in a turn-of-the-century mansion gives up its ghosts in eight separate episodes unfolding over a hundred years. The room evolves with changing fortunes, tastes, and the course of history, witnessing the Revolution, decadence, crime, earthquake, and waves of immigration and persecution. In Spanish with English subtitles. DCP digital.
