Pedro comes home to his wife and two adolescent girls in his home village in Guerrero, Mexico, after several years working illegally in the United States. There’s a palpable sense of relief but also some distance from the elder of his two daughters – his absence has taken its toll. Still, he has some savings now, and dreams of starting his own band, the Copa Kings. But a dramatic change – one of those strokes of misfortune that could befall anyone, anytime – reminds Pedro just how fragile life in an impoverished rural community can be, and we’re forced to wonder if he can resist the economic argument for leaving his family again and returning “over there”.

Winner of multiple awards, including the prestigious Critics Week Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Here and There establishes first-time director Antonio Méndez Esparza as a rising star of the international film world. He has a masterful ability to draw quiet intensity from simply staged scenes, conveying the unassuming dignity and humanity of his characters. Pedro De los Santos turns in a touchingly subtle and sensitive portrayal of a man who embodies the wider struggles of the Mexican emigrant experience.
