Todo lo Mejicano / Everything Mexican March 2011

From the eerie to the absurd, great stories and characters come to life based on short stories told by great Mexican writers. What happens when a discovered pre-columbian artifact of the god Chac Mool turns out to be the real god? Or when a stranded passenger on a commuter train route is guided circuitously nowhere as he attempts to travel from town A to B? A strange invitation from a widow and her daughter present a unique dining experience for a social climbing young man that could result in an eternal seat at the table. A happy newlywed wife pondering married life quickly moves from bliss to outrage, as she prepares the evening dinner for her beloved husband.
