Here and There
5:30, 8 p.m., Saturday May 04
Pedro returns home to a small mountain village in Guerrero, Mexico after years of working in the US. He finds his daughters older, and more distant than he imagined. His wife still has the same smile. Having saved some earnings from two trips to the US, he hopes to now finally make a better life with his family, and even to pursue his dreams on the side by starting a band: Copa Kings. He cherishes the everyday moments with his family. But the locals are wise to a life of insecurity, and their thoughts are often of opportunities far away, north of the border. While working in the fields, Pedro meets and begins to mentor a teenager who dreams of the US. That place somehow always feels very present, practically knocking at the door. Aquם y Allב is a story about hope, and the memories and loss of what we leave behind. In Spanish and Nahuatl with English subtitles.
