La Maldad

Dir: Joshua Gil
74' . Digital . 2015 . México


An old man in the countryside wants to make a movie, a whole life told through twelve songs. The story of a lost love and a family torn apart guided by the logic of dreams. Despite having the world’s best script, it will not be easy to achieve his project. Maybe his film is something he has already seen. The longing he feels is there, in the empty landscapes and the fire that never ceases. A stark portrait about growing old in the field.
