This remarkable debut feature by Mexican-American photographer and director Carlos Alfonso Corral, produced by Italian filmmaker Roberto Minervini, is a lyrical and sensitive documentary that intimately portrays the residents of a homeless community on the U.S.-Mexico border, including a recently married couple, a grieving father, a war veteran, and a 16-year-old girl. Shot on the streets of El Paso and Ciudad Juárez in sobering black and white, this vérité-style film is a raw yet profoundly compassionate and respectful portrait of people living on the edge. A selection of the Panorama at Berlinale Film Festival in 2021.
