Lupe bajo el sol


Long estranged from his family in Michoacán, migrant laborer Lupe finds relief from the backbreaking work of harvesting peaches in California's Central Valley through beer-drenched camaraderie and a quiet love affair with fellow immigrant Gloria. Playing with the limits between fiction and documentary, director Rodrigo Reyes worked with non-professional actors, real farmworkers living in the heart of California, to tell a moving drama about an aging peach picker who wants to go back to his home in Mexico before he dies. Inspired by the life of his own grandfather, Reyes' unforgettable film heralds the arrival of an important new voice in American cinema.
