The Night Watchman


Filmed in the labyrinth of Culiacan narco-cemetery, Martni - the night watchman - keeps an eye on the extravagant chapels of the infamous Mexican drug barons. This film about violence without violence tells us how, in the terror of the bloodiest conflict that Mexico has known since its Revolution, life returns and taunts death everyday.
