Striking handheld camerawork and spellbinding voiceovers are hallmarks of this expressionistic documentary, a study in atmosphere and introspection. Miriam, wrongfully imprisoned on trumped up charges of human trafficking in her native México, grapples with the violence she endured behind bars, while Adela–a circus clown–longs for her missing daughter, gone some ten years. Tempestad was commended as “a passionate plea for freedom” by jurors at the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival, where it premiered.

Director: Tatiana Huezo
