About the Film

Like every Sunday morning, a Zapotec grandfather goes to the city of Oaxaca to visit his granddaughter for the day. Their ritual consists of attending mass and window-shopping throughout the city. On this particular Sunday, their routine is disrupted when they pass by a stand selling watches.

El Reloj shows a day in the life of a Zapotec grandfather and his granddaughter.
