Adrian Ortiz Maciel

2013 | 72 min | Mexico

New York Premiere

Director Adrian Ortiz Maciel takes us on a poetic trek up and down a historic Latin American high rise, capturing the ebb and flow of tenants entering and leaving. The President Aleman Urban Housing Complex was designed in 1949 to be an emblem of modernity in Mexico City and an oasis for up to 5,000 federal administrators many of whom remain there today. The film weaves together testimonials from operators and residents over the years, who recall the infamous withdrawal of federal support and its impact on their quality of life, alongside personal stories of bustle and community in the complex.
