This is not a typical documentary about the U.S.-Mexico border. 'Purgatorio' doesn’t show experts revealing shocking facts, or shaky footage of migrants running away from the U.S. border patrol. Instead, Reyes takes viewers on a reflective -and often raw- journey through a surreal region that is full of contrasts.
Reyes will be showing the documentary around the United States in October. Visit his website rrcinema.com for more information on dates and locations.
