Part of Film series BAMcinemaFest 2019
Directed by Juan Pablo Gonzales | 2018

Death haunts a close-knit Mexican community in this evocatively spare, slow-burn documentary spellbinder. With a remarkably unobtrusive camera, director Juan Pablo González chronicles the everyday rituals and rhythms of life in a small, struggling rural town in the state of Jalisco where daily conversation turns again and again to one topic: the recent suicide of a young caballerango (horse wrangler) whose death, we soon learn, is only the latest in a rash of suicides that have plagued the village. Finding stirring poignancy in seemingly quotidian moments, Caballerango is a transcendentally sad and beautiful reflection on vanishing traditions and disappearing lives.

A mystery hangs over a group of young Muslim-American men in Sugar Land, Texas: what happened to their missing friend “Mark”? And could he really have joined ISIS?

Q&A with filmmaker Juan Pablo González and producer Farihah Zaman
