La sociedad del semáforo
In the city, thousands of displaced peasants gather around traffic lights to bet at intersections. One of them, Raul, who ends by collecting recyclable garbage, claims he has invented a device that extends the duration of red lights, allowing more time for acrobats, jugglers, beggars, and peddlers to collect money. In the midst of this fantastic delirium, the lives of Raul and his fellow travelers slide further towards the abyss, and their predicament becomes a symphony of despair, devoid of hope and touched by anarchy. The film captures a barely acknowledged underbelly of urban life.
