Tropic of Cancer

Eugenio Polgovsky
Mexico, 53 min

Tropic of Cancer describes how a Mexican family survives between an age-old desert and modern-day highway. The gaze that lies behind this piece reveals how Eugenio Polgovsky can touch and penetrate a reality; and how that universe caresses and hits him at the same time. It is a cinema that makes of documentary a life experience. This is my go-to film as a reminder of what honest, sharp and uncompromising cinema can provoke.
