In Plain View

Directed by Luis Palomino
Narrative Short
Mexico |15 min | 2021

Manot is a blind man who plays the saxophone on the sidewalk of Silom road in Bangkok. Ten meters away from him Ayutthaya, a deaf-mute homeless man, sniffs glue and sleeps all day. Through an impossible encounter between the two, instigated by the director of the film, secrets will unfold that will change their perspectives.

It’s my responsibility as a black man to share the African American experience through my films. But it’s my honor to depict the stories of any underrepresented community on screen.
