Executed with outstanding attention to detail, a prodigious ensemble cast, and splendid cinematography, the film is a window into a time lost in history” - Carlos Aguilar, INDIEWIRE

Pastorela is a film that delights in a good gag, both of the visual and spoken variety, and manages the difficult task of balancing disparate visual elements and styles with seeming ease. Helping greatly are his experienced and charismatic cast, particularly the menacing Joaquin Cosio as Chucho and Carlos Cobos as Father Mundo. – Todd Brown, TWITCHFILM.COM

Araya


A lyrical feature documentary in the visual tradition of MAN OF ARAN and LA TERRA TREMA, Benacerraf's stunning ARAYA had been all but forgotten until rescued and restored by Milestone. Choosing a harsh, arid environment for her setting, Benacerraf tells the stories of three families, two of whom are involved in harvesting salt along the Venezuelan coast. Their jobs are arduous, back-breaking, and poorly compensated, but the black & white images of the people and their environment are considered some of the most striking in cinema history. Benacerraf was able to capture both the harshness and beauty of a way of life on the verge of disappearance with the arrival of technology.

This series of 10 feature films and documentaries serve as a cinematic legacy of the characters and events of an unconcluded revolution.

La revolución que sacudió a México de 1910 a 1920, y que continuó en forma de guerra civil hasta 1929, es un evento que de muchas formas sigue presente en el país y en el mundo. Esta serie de diez películas sirve como un legado cinematográfico de los personajes y eventos de esta revolución inconclusa.
