FIRE IN THE BASEMENT (FUEGO EN EL SÓTANO)
Director: Eva Vázquez de Reoyo
Spanish with English subtitles | 8 min
Elisa, Leo and Ramos are students in 1968 in Mexico City, which is on the verge of hosting Latin America’s first-ever Olympic Games. They bond over a shared love of great coffee and great books, in particular the political writings of Marcuse. When the army bursts onto their campus, there is a huge strike and the three young friends get involved in the burgeoning student protest movement, focusing their efforts on the design and production of propaganda.
