Por la libertad
In this portrait, Mexican light master Carlos Reygadas (Post Tenebras Lux, 2012) seldom addresses the camera directly, but allows himself to be filmed during his first commercial assignment. An unexpectedly playful approach from this solitary filmmaker, in which his driver has as much to say as he does.
