Description: A documentary that reconstructs the life of the director's father, the poet Juan Rulfo. The result, a montage of images and stories, is a lyrical, feature-length, documentary study of memory and identity. Remembering and forgetting, forgetting and re-remembering with generous measures of creative confabulation, the villagers reweave Juan Rulfo's persona with threads of the real, the borrowed, and the invented. The result, composed partly from the life of the sought-after father and partly from the lives of those who remember him, is a story that reveals multiple strands of the elders' identities through the identity of the poet.
