EL DOCTOR in the press


“The dryness of the desert, a type of labyrinth for the immigrants that consciously takes the risk of getting lost forever in the exodus. The screen reflects like a mirror, what happens every day in the bowels of the citizens without a voice. A look at the universal moral and emotional complexity of people and at the individual pulse that inevitably lays bare the character of our human nature. Met with passionate applause at its finale, this short captivated the audience in the deepest way.”
