La Empresa

| La Empresa

The small Mexican village is used to national and international film crews. The so-called Caminata Nocturna made it famous. A tourist attraction based on the experiences of the villagers, recreating the illegal crossing of the border into the United States. The Germans are looking for more intimate images than those already exploited by Netflix, but they encounter a community that manages their stories well. Thus LA EMPRESA evolves into an unintentional exploration of the possibilities and limits of filmic representation. (Clara Winter)
