Acapulco Folding Screen

Film Essay (Medium-length)

Once a world-famous tourist destination, Acapulco is now one of the cities with the most murders per capita. Assembling stories about five emblematic Acapulco objects and characters, Acapulco Folding Screen is an experimental documentary that registers the contrasting complexity of this old global port. Combining a non-linear and polyphonic narrative with a discordant montage composed of diverse audiovisual material about the place, the film is inspired by the oriental folding screens that arrived in America through the port of Acapulco in the 16th century.
