Tempestad

tatiana Huezo / Mexico / 2016 / 105 mins / Spanish with English subtitles / Documentary

“Cerebral and emotional… a road movie fuelled by the memories of unjust punishment.”
SCREEN DAILY

Tempestad is an emotional and contemplative journey told through the voice-over of two women victimised by their country’s corruption and injustice. On a quiet morning on a normal day, Miriam is arrested at her workplace and is accused, without proof, of ‘people trafficking’. Adela works as a clown in a travelling circus. Ten years ago, her life was irreversibly transformed; every night during the show, she evokes her missing daughter, Monica. It is a highly poetic, yet frightening image of a country that is fighting a constant, barely visible war against institutional corruption and the power of cartels.

This film has been exempt from classification and is restricted to people over 18 years.
