SCREENING

Tropic of Cancer

Ongoing

Digital projection. A pointed dispatch from the deserts of inland Mexico, where impoverished families use homemade traps and weapons to hunt snakes and birds amid arid brushland. Eugenio Polgovsky’s first film captures a state of existence that might as well be prehistoric—and, in a remarkable final act, pulls back to reveal its place within a contemporary economic system.
