Synopsis

Having lost the pigment in his skin, Matias, an infirmed orphan at a Michoacán primary school, has been quarantined from his classmates. Meanwhile, the presence and words of novelist Mario Bellatin offer the prospect of healing to his ailing body.

Our take

Originally commissioned by the Mexican Ministry of Education, Nicolás Pereda and Gabino Rodríguez’s hypnotically mysterious, hybrid object unravels and metamorphoses within the walls of a school. This oneiric journey from light to darkness is a gorgeously abstracted tale of childhood and healing.
