Rio Escondido

Rio Escondido
Dir. Emilio Fernandez, 1948.
Mexico, 99 minutes. 
Spanish with English subtitles.

Set in Mexico's post-revolutionary period, Rosaura is a young teacher, sent by the state to teach in the remote desert village of Rio Escondido. The governance of the town is corrupt and it is the young teacher's mission to teach the villagers and help undo the insidious corruption that threatens the very lives of those living there as a drought takes hold and water becomes a more precious resource. Unfolding as a fairly traditional drama, the cinematography and visual work of the director are best characterized as steady and reflective, featuring the symbolism of the new state with an opening sequence set against the work of Diego Rivera, questioning patriotism, collectivism, and the justification of vigilante action for the benefit of all.

Sidewalk Stories

Sidewalk Stories
Director: Charles Lane, 1989.
United States, 97 minutes.
English.

Starring the director as a struggling portrait artist working the streets of 1989's Greenwich Village, Sidewalk Stories follows the artist as he now navigates the streets with a small toddler, the daughter of an acquaintance, as their paths merge through unfortunate circumstance.  

Shot in black and white and nearly silent, Lane makes a direct reference to Charlie Chaplin's The Kid, making heavy use of tongue-in-cheek humor to punctuate the drama portrayed on the screen. Poignant and affecting, Lane's work paints a harsh but sometimes gentle view of city life, highlighting the daily inhumanities of city life in a humane cast.
