Here and there

I’ve been meaning for sometime to write about a wonderful film made by a friend and film school contemporary. We saw it when it was screened at the London Film Festival last month.

Antonio (Mendez Esparza) has made an elegant and humane film called Aqui y Alla, about a Mexican family, living through the reality of immigration and separation. The film contains humour and sadness alongside moments of rare beauty and stillness.

I hope you get a chance to see it. Following a great festival run, some savvy distributor will surely release it soon.
