In a crumbling , sepia-toned city, a child has died. Accompanied by slow, mournful mariachi music, the father wanders hopelessly through a dreamy and desolate landscape in this exquisitely animated short still manages to find a distinct tone, recognizable from director Castañeda’s earlier efforts. With great attention to color and texture, she creates a melancholic world both immersive and somewhat unsettling. The result is a poetic yet concise depiction of grief and despair.
