Documentary filmmaker Yulene Olaizola's film is set against the backdrop of her grandmother Rosa Carbajal's Mexico City boarding house, at the intersection of streets named for two storied scribes. Rosa recalls her encounters with her most memorable tenant, an artist named Jorge Riosse. Sexually ambiguous and mentally ill, Jorge devoted much of his time to his idiosyncratic paintings, and the film deals with his death, his art and circumstantial evidence pointing to his much darker side.
Director: Yulene Olaizola
