Poetas Campesinos describes the artistic tradition of the farmers that are part of the indigenous group of the Papolocas in San Felipe Otlaltepec, Mexico. I saw this film when I was a student. The narrative form and staging of this film captivated me. At that time, the norm was to use a narrator giving ethnographic explanations on this matter, but Nicolás Echevarría tantalizingly transitioned in that territory that exists between fiction and documentary to tell this story.
