The MassArt Film/Video Screening Series: MassArt Ciné-Culture presents the feature film, Lupe Under the Sun, with visiting filmmaker Rodrigo Reyes. The director will be present at the screening with an open discussion to follow the film. All are welcome to attend.
Long estranged from his family in Mexico, migrant laborer Lupe finds relief from the backbreaking work of harvesting peaches in California’s Central Valley through beer-drenched camaraderie and a quiet love affair with fellow immigrant Gloria. Soon the stability of his daily routine begins to crack under the weight of a life scarred with regret and missed opportunities, as he tries to do everything he can to go home one last time before it is too late.
In this, his first narrative feature, director Rodrigo Reyes plays with the limits between fiction and documentary, working with non-professional actors, real Mexican farmworkers living in the heart of California, to tell a moving drama about the nostalgia and heartbreak that live on the margins of the American Dream.
