Our new international feature documentary coming in 2021 is set in Mexico. It tells the story of heavy metal loving Donovan Tavera, a ‘forensic cleaner’ who supports his family by cleaning up the murdered and the dead across Mexico City. This innovative feature mixing verite documentary and surreal animations, centers around the extraordinary Mexican citizen Donovan, and his struggle to find happiness despite his bloody work. A surreal and ultimately inspiring story that gives a personal insight in the soaring ‘violencia’ and the balancing act between life and death in modern Mexico.
