America ReFramed

Purgatorio | Promo

Preview: Season 3 Episode 1 | 30s

Leaving politics aside, Rodrigo Reyes’ Purgatorio looks anew at the U.S./Mexico border and the people caught in its spell. The evocative Dantesque essay film presents the border as a mythical place exploring the vulnerability of the human soul, the violence man creates and the destruction left in its wake.
