Overview

El Velador
Thu, Nov 1, 7:30pm & Sun, Nov 4, 2:00pm
By Natalia Almada

A film about violence with no violence. From dusk to dawn, El Velador accompanies Martin, the guardian angel who, night after night, watches over the extravagant mausoleums of some of Mexico's most notorious drug lords. In the labyrinth of the cemetery, this extraordinary new documentary reminds us how, in the turmoil of Mexico's bloodiest conflict since the Revolution, ordinary life persists and quietly defies the dead. (2011, 72 min, digital)
