Michel Lipkes, 2011
Mexico | Format: 35mm | 66 minutes

Director Michel Lipkes in person!

In this very personal award-winning debut, Lipkes slowly follows an elderly man on his last day of life. As he wanders through the streets of a Mexico City that is at once familiar and foreign, the man goes about his daily rituals, exquisitely drawing us into his rhythm. Through his eyes we experience the city in its splendor and its grimness, and his plight as both ordinary and absurd.

En esta ópera prima galardonada y muy personal, Lipkes lentamente sigue a un anciano en su último día de vida. El hombre recorre las calles de la ciudad de México, que parece conocida y extraña a la vez, y nos sumerge en el ritmo de sus rutinas diarias. A través de sus ojos vemos a la ciudad en su mayor esplendor y en su peor abandono, y al destino del anciano como algo cotidiano y absurdo a la vez. El director Michel Lipkes estará presente para conversar con el público.
