Red Shoes Zapatos rojos

  Carlos Eichelmann Kaiser

  Mexico      2022    


When Artemio receives unsettling news about his daughter, he sets out from his remote mountain farm for Mexico City in search of answers. As he struggles to navigate the utterly foreign capital, he strikes up an unlikely friendship with a down-on-her-luck sex worker. Together the two embark on a journey through the city’s labyrinthian streets and bureaucracies. A profound, poetic visual style and empathetic lead performances power this quietly ferocious fable about love, duty, and determination.
