DIR. ALVARO CURIEL (MEXICO 2010, 97 MIN)
CAST: SILVERIO PALACIOS, LAURA DE LA LUZ
Convinced that it’s completely inefficient to cross the border to become one of millions of Mexican fugitives, Silverio Palacios transforms his old abandoned taxi into a raft to sail to Miami in search of the American Dream. A passionate speaker of senseless speeches, Silverio prepares the most important one yet, as he’ll try to convince the American Government to receive a political refugee, fleeing from Communism and risking his life in search of freedom and a better opportunity. A turn of events transforms Alacrán’s dream into a new reality. Silverio improvises a desperate speech in front of a Cuban Government who watches the arrival of the first Mexican fleeing the Capital System to seek refuge in the last socialist country in the continent, as very unlikely.
