Video Divina: La Zona
St. Monica's Parish Hall - 6405 Terrebonne, Montreal, Qc.
Starring: Daniel Giménez Cacho, Daniel Tovar, and Alan Chávez
Living in splendid isolation in “La Zona,” heavily-walled and guarded gated community in Mexico City, Alejandro has little idea of what goes on outside his privileged life. However, he catches a fateful glimpse – on his 18th birthday – when several poor teenagers break into “La Zona” to steal from the wealthy residents. But their plans tragically unravel when an elderly woman accidently is killed. As the community forms a violent mob of vigilantes to find the criminals, Alejandro discovers one of them, a boy his age, hiding in his basement. Their brief but critical meeting compels a reflection on very timely moral, religious and social issues.
