In showing the emotional impact of Mexico's ongoing political crisis, Heuzo has provided a valuable reminder of why broad systemic change is needed.
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.
The ending is a powerful one.
[A] disturbing, experimental work.
Tatiana Huezo's exquisite documentary speaks painful truths but is worth every minute.
This is a heartfelt essay film that digs into several instances of trauma occasioned by Mexico's drug war.
It would seem impossible for a painful and tragic story to project itself with beauty, but Tatiana Huezo does it again. [Full review in Spanish]
Huezo puts those stories in service of a broader and much more ambitious remit: to tell us about a whole exploited underclass, a whole society, a whole country.
