"A Moment In Mexicoexplores themes and aspects of Mexican culture Hollywood often leaves untouched. From the aftermath of the 2017 earthquake in Mexico City to the injustices Mexico's indigenous population faces in the justice system, six short films created by Mexican documentary makers will showcase the country beyond just the narco-narratives that are most often in view. 

The six films are a collection highlighted by The New York Times' Op-Docs series to provide Mexican filmmakers a platform to share the story of their country through their own eyes. The screening, co-hosted by The Wild Detectives and the Mexican Consulate, will be followed by a discussion with filmmaker Diego Rabasa, who worked on Ruptured City, one of the films to be screened.
