THE SWIRL

72 min. 2016, MEXICO (recorded in Mexico)

Directed by Laura Herrero Garvín

Pedro is a transvestite farmer who defends his identity and his dreams. His sister Esther strives for a better future for her daughter as she shares her world through the lens of her small camera. They live in El Remolino, a tiny riverside community in Chiapas, Mexico, that is affected by strong floods every year. To them, life is like a swirl that spins them across the journey of their internal cycles and of the greater natural cycle of the river.

KEERIS

Režissöör Laura Herrero Garvin

Pedro on transvestiidist talupidaja, kes seisab oma identiteedi ja unistuste eest. Tema õde Esther soovib oma tütrele paremat tulevikku ja jagab väikese kaamerasilma kaudu tema elukäiku. Nad elavad Mehhikos Chiapase osariigi ühes väikeses jõeäärses külas El Remolinos, mis kannatab iga-aastaste üleujutuste all. Nende jaoks on elu nagu keeris, milles nad pöörlevad nii oma sisemistes tsüklites kui jõe looduslikus tsüklis.
