Intimidad poster


Intimidad is an original Mexican love story about family relationships and the meaning of “home.” Cecy and Camilo – ages 21 – recently moved to the border, Reynosa, Mexico, from Santa Maria, Puebla with a dream to save money, buy land, and build a home. A year later they return to their rural hometown to reunite with their two year-old daughter Loida. What seems like a satisfying reunion turns into a confusing dilemma that transforms the course of their marriage. Both the family in the film – and the directors – documented Intimidad over the course of 5 years, lending the story to an incredibly intimate, dream-like impression. Intimidad mixes digital verite with Super 8 and 16mm film stock.
