Jorge López Navarrete’s Rough Remote Rumble is a beguiling and exquisite depiction of defiant resistance in the face of impending destruction. We near silently witness a real-life stonecutter returning to his native land to give with his own hands a dignified end to the last remains of his family past. Shot entirely in black and white, even the mere contemplation of a cloud changing its shape is enough to know if something else can still be done. An utterly unique and profoundly poetic form of filmmaking and craft at its very finest.
