Donkeys / Odin Salazar Flores
People tend to forget that donkeys, apart from being stubborn and hard-working, are also characterized by their invaluable ability to carry other people’s burdens. Lautaro is a young boy growing up in the inner Guerero State of Mexico during the 40s. Upon his father’s murder, his mother decides to send him away to live with his aunt, lest the murderers decide to do the same to her son. While Lautaro is sad about being away from his family, he makes an exciting new discovery, as he is introduced for the first time to the world of the spirits. With one foot firm in the dimension of realism, and the other reaching out to the universe of magic, Donkeys follow Lautaro in his abrupt coming-of-age journey, as he is forced to carry an inherited responsibility. Dreams, memories, fleeting encounters with ghostly beings and with tangible new friends and allies accompany Lautaro in Odin Salazar Flores’ tender, but never condescending or melodramatic film.
