FILM INFORMATION

Synopsis On a dry lakebed in 1964, a trucker and his companion find a baby boy at the dry breast of its dead mother. Years later the trucker operates an ice factory in a poor urban district with his son, José, who dreams of one day striking out on his own. Neighbor Felipe, meanwhile, works at an Internet café and another neighbor, Andrés, lives with his alcoholic father but spends his free time studying Mexico’s pre-Columbian golden age. All three share a defining incident from their childhood, linking the destinies of their entire neighborhood to the lakebed and baby from years earlier. In this shrewd and well-acted story, director Alejandro Gerber Bicecci turns a tangled neighborhood tale into an enthralling mix of history, memory and atonement, creating an unexpected parable of modern Mexico itself.


About the Director Alejandro Gerber Bicecci was born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1977. He graduated cum laude from the Film Training Center CCC (Centro de Capacitación Cinematográfica) and has received numerous grants and fellowships for filmmaking and screenwriting. He is a prolific producer of documentaries and shorts, and his second documentary, Morada, won the Golden Mikeldi at the Bilbao International Film Festival and screened worldwide. Becloud is his first feature film.
