Amores perros by Guillermo Arriaga Jordán( Book )

"Amores Perros is a bold, ambitious and intensely emotional story of lives that collide in a Mexico City car crash. Guillermo Arriaga's screenplay is as inventively structured as a Paul Auster novel: a triptych of overlapping and intersecting narratives, exploring the lives of disparate characters who are catapulted into unforeseen dramatic situations, instigated by the seemingly inconsequential destiny of a dog named Cofi." "Octavio, Cofi's teenage owner, enters the dog into brutal fighting contests, hoping to win enough money so that he can elope with Susana, the appealing young wife of his aggressive brother Ramiro. A near-fatal injury to Cofi prompts a reckless car chase that ends violently." "Middle-aged businessman Daniel discovers that dreams can become nightmares, after he abandons his family to set up house with a beautiful young model, Valeria, who is tragically transformed by the crash." "And El Chivo, a revolutionary-turned-assassin, witnesses the accident and finds that it leads him to a life-changing moral epiphany."--BOOK JACKET
La Calle : photographs from Mexico by Alex Webb( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Calle brings together more than thirty years of photography from the streets of Mexico by Alex Webb, spanning 1975 to 2007. Whether in black and white or color, Webb's richly layered and complex compositions touch on multiple genres. As Geoff Dyer writes, "Wherever he goes, Webb always ends up in a Bermuda-shaped triangle where the distinctions between photojournalism, documentary, and art blur and disappear." Webb's ability to distill gesture, light, and cultural tensions into single, beguiling frames results in evocative images that convey a sense of mystery, irony, and humor. Following an initial trip in the mid-1970s, Webb returned frequently to Mexico, working intensely on the U.S.-Mexico border and into southern Mexico throughout the 1980s and '90s, inspired by what poet Octavio Paz calls "Mexicanism--delight in decorations, carelessness and pomp, negligence, passion, and reserve." La Calle presents a commemoration of the Mexican street as a sociopolitical bellwether--albeit one that has undergone significant transformation since Webb's first trips to the country. Newly commissioned pieces from noted Mexican and Mexican American authors lend further insight into the roles the streets have played for generations: part arterial network, part historical palimpsest, and part absurdist theater of the everyday.--Publisher website
Retorno 201 by Guillermo Arriaga Jordán( Book )

26 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lilly es un cuento brutal sobre el abuso infantil por parte de la propia infancia. En la obscuridad toca el tema antes indicado de la capacidad de la enfermedad para despertar nuestra lucidez. Ultimátum violeta me recuerda a ese angustioso relato de Cortázar en que un personaje descubre la nada al intentar ponerse un púlover de estrecho cuello, aquí la nada, el acabamiento lo induce una garrapata que absorbe al personaje hasta agotarlo--un cuento genial. El rostro borrado es una exploración sobre la memoria y la ternura, con un estilo dulce y acariciador. 195 estremece al acercarse al tema del maltrato femenino y la maternidad con una dureza que a la vez transmite sentimiento de un modo que es muy difícil definir, pero que es facilísimo sentir
