abstract
Rodrigo Reyes₂ provocative essay film re-imagines the Mexico/U.S. border as a mythical place comparable to Dante₂s purgatory. Leaving politics aside, he takes a fresh look at the brutal beauty of the border and the people caught in its spell. By capturing a stunning mosaic of compelling characters and broken landscapes on the border, Reyes reflects on the flaws of human nature and the powerful absurdities of the modern world.
