"An unsettlingly quiet, even lyrical film about a world made and unmade by violence"—A.O. Scott, New York Times on El Velador

Night watchman Martin watches over the extravagant mausoleums of some of Mexico’s most notorious drug lords in El Velador. Almada’s quiet meditation on violence portrays the ways in which normal life exists even amid Mexico’s brutal drug wars. (72 mins, HD video)

All Water Has a Perfect Memory explores the effects of tragedy and memory on Almada’s bicultural family, which is headed by her North American mother and Mexican father. (19 mins, video)

Also mark your calendar for Tuesday, September 25, when Natalia Almada introduces another double feature.

Presented in conjunction with Ohio State’s Hispanic Heritage Month and Multicultural Center.
