Aug 28, 29, 30, Sept 4, 5 and 6

Ever since the National University strike broke out, slacker/students Sombra and Santos have been living in angst-ridden limbo in Mexico City. Education-less, motionless, purposeless, and unsure of what the strike will bring, they begin to look for strange ways to kill time. But their idiosyncratic routine is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of Tomas, Sombra’s kid brother. Unable to fit in amongst these older slackers, Tomas discovers that unsung Mexican folk-rock hero Epigmenio Cruz is somewhere in the city. Tomas convinces Sombra and Santos they must track him down in order to pay their final respects on his deathbed. But what they thought would be a simple trip to find their childhood idol, soon becomes a voyage of self-discovery across Mexico City’s invisible frontiers.

WHERE ARE WE?

“A gorgeous slice of deadbeat Mexico City slacker poetry…a work of genius…witty, delicate and often magical. GUEROS is the foreign-language discovery of 2015 so far, and pretty close to the best film I’ve seen all year.” – Andrew O’Hehir, Salon

“Both sweetly nostalgic and exuberantly now… An unabashed homage not only to the Nouvelle Vague but also to a more general international new wave-ism. The story pops and swerves; the images are by turns comical, banal and ravishing: and the result is a briskly shaken cocktail made of equal parts provocation and comfort. You come away with a buzz that is invigorating and pleasantly familiar… In the Godardian spirit of MASCULINE FEMININE and BAND OF OUTSIDERS…”– A.O. Scott, The New York Times
