2022 North Carolina Latin American Film Festival: Nudo Mixteco
October 12 at 7:00 pm
Dir. by Ángeles Cruz. México. 2021. 91 min. In Spanish with English subtitles.
Set against the backdrop of the annual Festival of San Mateo, writer/director Ángeles Cruz weaves a rich tapestry of three Indigenous women navigating love, sex, and desire within the often-crushing strictures of customs and traditions.
Nudo Mixteco follows the return of María, Esteban, and Toña, each from a different direction. Each of them has a different reason for coming back, just like each had a different reason to leave in the first place. However, all three face a confrontation that will force a turning point in their lives.
Shown with short film, Minka de la Memoria (Collective Memory)
Dir. by Luis Cintora. Peru. 2020. 5 min.
