The Echo (El eco)

Latin Wave

Winner of the Best Documentary Award at the Berlin, Chicago, and Morelia film festivals, the latest work by Mexican-Salvadoran Tatiana Huezo (Prayers for the Stolen) is an epic, intimate, and lyrical portrayal of life set in a small rural mountain village. In The Echo, teenagers take care of their elders and tend to the sheep. As frost and drought punish the land, the teens learn to understand death, illness, and love with every single act.

Organized by the MFAH in association with the creative partner Fundación PROA, Buenos Aires.
Sponsored by Tenaris.


Programmed in collaboration with Cinema Tropical.
