Description

Beautiful, and haunting, this dream-like documentary re-imagines the U.S./Mexico border as a surreal place where spellbound residents are stuck between perception and reality. Pristine imagery is key to director Rodrigo Reyes’ ethereal vision, painting a sometimes brutal landscape with vibrant colors and textures. As a result, Purgatorio challenges the typical definition of non-fiction cinema, residing somewhere on the boundary of narrative and essay film.
