SYNOPSIS

Streams of Silence articulates two narrative lines with sensorial depth: the first is the narration of the filmmaker’s taxi journey through Mexico City; the second is Bernal Díaz del Castillo’s chronicle of the conquest of Mexico in the “True History of the Conquest of New Spain”. These two intertwined narrative lines not only reveal the history of colonialism in the country but also its sensitive density, exploring the timelessness and memory of its landscape.
