The Letters - Pablo Chavarría Gutiérrez

Mexico, 2015, 77 min
  • Production: Bengala

Behind the dark, sensuous and almost hallucinatory images, a grim story is smouldering about a school teacher and social activist, who after a questionable trial was convicted for killing four police officers in a Mexican province. The letters he wrote to his daughter from prison are a smouldering indictment against a corrupt system in a film that almost without proper dialogues (also) manages to be a sensory and psychological portrait of both a place and a state of mind.
