CALLE LOPEZ (Mexico, 2013, 80 min.)
Shown as part of Our Cities, Our Planet
Washington, D.C. Premiere Somewhere between visual anthropology and art-house cinema, this film, shot beautifully in black and white, captures a microcosm of Mexican society. Two photographers, Gerardo Barroso Alcalá and Lisa Tillinger have recently moved to busy Calle López in historic downtown Mexico City. A bustling cauldron of everyday life, Calle López is so vibrant that they become inspired to follow the street’s residents with their cameras. They document the daily comings and goings of a parade of street vendors, beggars and other urban dwellers. In Spanish with English subtitles. Directed by Gerardo Barroso Alcalá and Lisa Tillinger.
Introduced by Flo Stone, Founder, Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital.
