Alejandro & Miguel | 16 mm, color, sound

Multigenerational borders manifest both emotionally and vocationally in the relationship between Miguel Bencomo and his fourteen-year-old son Alejandro. In this portrait of ranch life in the town of Casa Grandes, Mexico, questions rise surrounding love, connection, escapism and the inherited responsibility of family lineage.
