Santa Teresa and Other Stories

  • Santa Teresa Image Slider Image

Mexico, Dominican Republic, USA | 65 min | DCP | Dir. Nelson Carlo de los Santos Arias

An adaptation of 2666, the posthumous novel by Roberto Bolaño, Santos Arias' film adopts the postmodern character of its source text by combining warmly shot landscapes and other more abstract imagery with passages from the book detailing a photographer's investigation into a series of murders in the fictionalized city of Santa Teresa (based on violence occurring in the real Mexican city of Ciudad Juárez). The narrative becomes a fiction-documentary hybrid in its recounting of the real atrocities committed in this city, while highlighting the themes with Santos Arias' 16mm photography.
