Event Location: HG 1030
Join us for a screening of the documentary film Tempestad (2016) dir. Tatiana Huezo.
Through a subjective and emotional journey, this film conveys the paralyzing power of fear: fear as a sickness that prevents you from taking a stand on your life, on the future of your children; which clouds your ability to dream and grow.
A morning on a quite normal day: Miriam is arrested at her workplace and is accused, without proof, of “people trafficking”. The violence she suffered and was exposed to during her imprisonment has left a profound gap in her life.
Adela works as a clown in a traveling circus. Ten years ago, her life was irreversibly transformed; every night during the show, she evokes her missing daughter, Monica. Tempest is the parallel journey of two women. Mirror-like, it reflects the impact of the violence and impunity that afflict Mexico.
Through their voices, we are drawn into the heart of their feelings, steeped in loss and pain, but also love, dignity and resistance.
