Sinfonía de un mar triste

Symphony of a Sad Sea

## ##

A wide, narrow shot shows Hugo standing by the sea, eyes fixed on the horizon: an image both tight and vast. There is an oppressiveness to Hugo’s day-to-day life in Mexico, and in his overlaid voice, which shares the narrative of his move from Guerrero in the south, to the coast near the US border. At the same time, the wide aspect ratio captures the expanse of the ocean, on the other side of which, Hugo believes, his father lives.
