Tierra en la lengua | Rubén Mendoza, 2014

Despite family patriarch Don Silvio’s abusive behavior toward friends and family, his magnetism has allowed him to remain the center of attention his entire life. When his death is imminent, he makes an unusual request—he asks two of his grandchildren to help him die. Will they take revenge? With an impeccable direction of actors and a seamless flow between fiction, documentary, and mockumentary, Rubén Mendoza displays surprising skill and boldness as he navigates the sensitive subject of veiled hostility between parents and offspring.
