In August 2017, the Mexican film industry was moved by the terrible news of the Death of Eugenio Polgovsky, one of our best documentary filmmakers. To commemorate a life filled with talent dedicated to expressing through cinema the realities of our world, the Guanajuato International Film Festival invites you to participate in a Special Showing in his honor.
At 20:30 hrs, at the Steps of the University of Guanajuato, the documentary Los Herederos, one of his most celebrated feature films, will be screened. It portrays the infamous working conditions of children in the Mexican fields, focusing on how it’s a generational inheritance.
Mourning the loss of this unique figure in the Mexican film industry, GIFF celebrates a first-rate artistic legacy that will undoubtedly keep moving many generations of spectators. May Eugenio Polgovsky Rest in Peace.
