Ariel Escalante Meza is directing a film about pride, memories and fantastic visions with a cast made of mainly non professional actors, a very slim crew and a lot fo passion. He tells us about this intense and rewarding experience and why movies have to be about conflict to be worth.

Domingo and The Mist: The town 65-year-old Domingo lives in is being threatened by thugs hired by a developer to expel its inhabitants and pave the way for the construction of a mega highway. But his land hides a secret—the ghost of his deceased wife who visits him within the mist.
