FRONTEIRA: BROKEN TONGUE BY MÓNICA SAVIRÓN (ENG)

By José Sarmiento Hinojosa

No country is alien to the different ways of migration that helped built its identity through history, neither its convoluted aftermaths, the history of violence and segregation, the historical struggles that ensued. And few films have inserted a dagger so deeply into the subconscious in this runtime. There’s much to think, talk about and revisit in Mónica Saviron’s Broken Tongue, but frame by frame, it is very much a modern masterpiece of a film, a plethora of images and words deeply inserted into the avant-garde and a film that commands to be seen over and over again.
