El Velador Screening Description:

Award-winning director Natalia Almada (“Al Otro Lado,” POV 2005; “El General,” POV 2009) returns with a mesmerizing new film. From dusk to dawn, “El Velador (The Night Watchman)” accompanies Martin, a guard who watches over the extravagant mausoleums of some of Mexico’s most notorious drug lords. In the labyrinth of the cemetery, this film about violence without violence reminds us that, amid the turmoil of a drug war that has claimed more than 50,000 lives, ordinary existence persists in Mexico and quietly defies the dead.

 

This project is made possible by support from Latino Public Broadcasting and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
