Mexico - Duo draw on local inspiration

Young film-making duo Israel Cardenas and Laura Guzman are typical of a new generation of Latin American film-makers in their desire to portray the continent without resorting to stereotypes. Their debut feature, Cochochi, explores the life and culture of an indigenous Mexican tribe, the Tarahumaras, through two young brothers' search for a missing horse. It screened in Venice this week as part of the Orrizonti section and is playing in Toronto's Discovery sidebar.
