There is a Q&A with Betzabé García following the screening, hosted by Nick Bradshaw, web editor of Sight & Sound and widely published film critic.
An immersive vision of a submerged Mexican village. Betzabé García’s debut documentary feature Kings of Nowhere is a beautiful, absorbing exposé of San Marcos, in Northwestern Mexico. Three families live in a village partially submerged by water: Pani and Paula do not want to close their tortilleria and spend their spare time rescuing the town from ruins; Miro and his parents dream of leaving but can’t; Yoya and Jaimito live in fear but have everything they need. With a delicate, unobtrusive approach, we witness their daily lives as we navigate through the melancholy of a place that is slowly disappearing.
Kings of Nowhere, dir. Betzabé García, Mexico 2015, 83 mins
