Movie Info

Two women, their voices echoing over the landscape and highways of Mexico from North to South, tell how official corruption and injustice allowed violence to take control of their lives. The film is a meditation on corruption and on the notion of "impunidad," the impunity or unaccountability of those in power, whether part of the Mexican government or the country's drug cartels. An emotional and evocative journey, steeped not only in loss and pain, but also in love, dignity and resistance.

Nightmarish stories intertwine with dreamy visuals to create an unsettling, and strangely entrancing, film in "Tempestad."

Intimate and formally inventive, Huezo's approach situates us right there beside Miriam - it's as if a new acquaintance is unburdening herself to trek south together.

The beautifully crafted and creative documentary Tempestad traces the stories of two women whose lives, through no fault of their own, became utter, incomprehensible nightmares.

There's no denying that stories about the wider consequences of human trafficking... are important. But the way Huezo has organized her material doesn't do it any favors.

Tempestad effectively places the viewer in the mindset of a victimized populace slowly being suffocated by fear.
