A group of innocent people is charged with human trafficking and thrown into prison. The authorities announce they’ve dealt a blow to organised crime; the public is reassured. Tempestad is a road movie: 2000 kilometres by bus from Matamoros to Cancún, through a blustery, overcast, bleak country. In her second feature documentary, Tatiana Huezo has a young mother recount her journey through hell: innocent, robbed of her liberty, she’s handed over to those for whom she’s being made to atone – in a private prison controlled by the Gulf Cartel.
"A deeply disturbing film featuring case studies that display no regard for human life and dignity, this is highly recommended"
"The beautifully crafted and creative documentary 'Tempestad' traces the stories of two women whose lives, through no fault of their own, became utter, incomprehensible nightmares"
"Cerebral and emotional, Tempestad is a road movie fuelled by the memories of unjust punishment. It’s a bumpy but illuminating ride."
"Huezo puts those stories in service of a broader and much more ambitious remit: to tell us about a whole exploited underclass, a whole society, a whole country"
"Fascinating and important material"
The Hollywood Reporter
"It would take a heart of stone not to be moved"
The Upcoming (UK)
"The visual beauty of this exceptional documentary derives its nobility from the despair of its heartbreaking story"
Critique Film (France)
"Tatiana Huezo directs with a steady pulse an approximation of the most honestly brutal and subtle human cruelty."
El Antepenultimo Mohicano (Spain)
"According to standard documentary criteria, Tempestad is a very audacious film. With its views of streets, landscapes and nameless co-travelers, the film almost visually explodes and creates its Impact through the very things it does not show."
"The director’s assured vision makes Tempestad so much more than a stylish creative exercise ... Without hint of hyperbole, a spellbinding film. Not one to miss."
"An ambitious movie which deserves to be seen."
CALIGARI JURY of BERLINALE explanation for awarding SPECIAL MENTION for the 2016 CALIGARI PRIZE to TEMPESTAD.
"A journey into the dominion of darkness: an empire of violence, human trafficking, corruption. With forcefully intensive images, this film takes us on a monstrous journey through hell. And at the same time, it is a passionate plea for freedom."
