synopsis
Newly arrived in the rural South from Mexico, Muñe has a run-in with a family in their steel salvage yard.

director
Catalina Jordan Alvarez grew up in rural Tennessee with a Colombian mother and an American father, and in her early career studied Experimental Theater in New York City and Film Directing in Berlin. Her films include PACO, a comic portrait of a cat caller choreographed with a non-professional cast and captured with 16mm photography, Kallocain, a science fiction short about the development of an inner truth serum and Das Goldene Licht, a “Bergfilm” about a blind grandmother who climbs the Alps. Her work has screened at over forty film festivals including Slamdance, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Rooftop Films Summer Series, Fantastic Fest, Oxford, and Edinburgh Short. Her publication, “Towards Another Cinema” (Cinephile, issue 11.3, 2017) analyzes the creative strategies for portraying non-western characters to a western audience, employed by filmmakers Ulrike Ottinger and Kidlat Tahimik, in their fantasy ethnographies “Joan of Arc of Mongolia” and “Perfumed Nightmare.” She was recently a Fellow at the 2018 Flaherty Film Seminar and a Resident Artist at Flux Factory in Queens. She is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Media Arts at Antioch College in Yellow Springs Ohio.

filmmaker's note
I shot Muñe in my hometown, where my parents still live. The amazing cast includes locals Clare Gundersen, Estela Ingles and David Roby.
