Carefully curated to present a diverse look at nearly all facets of the human experience, the narrative shorts from Oaxaca FilmFest are sure to resonate with every viewer in some form or fashion. Through the talented directing of filmmakers from across the globe, human relationships to danger, tragedy, love, oppression, and the supernatural are dissected in films that are as rich in substance as they are in mastery of technical skill. Asking the audience to ponder their own circumstances and responses, these films are a provocative look at what it means to possess a soul, personality, sexuality, set of responsibilities, and other elements of humanity. Although focused on various unique characters and themes, the films from Oaxaca FilmFest manage to unite under the idea of the universality of the human condition and weave together to form a challenging and stimulating cinematic tapestry.
