Pablo Nieto – México - La Cuenca de los Ríos de Piedra

A principios del siglo XX, la mayoría de ríos y lagos en la Ciudad de México se cubrieron con concreto. Este documental evoca la memoria íntima de esta transformación. Navegaremos por las experiencias de cuatro personas mayores cuyas vidas estuvieron marcadas por los ríos, lagos y canales de la Ciudad de México, cuando el agua estaba más presente que en la actualidad.

Buscamos narrar cómo hemos vivido y convivido con el agua, a través de los ojos de aquellos que han sido testigos de las profundas transformaciones de una capital que lentamente drenó su agua y la reemplazó con capas de concreto.

La narrativa multivocal hará un mapa de los recuerdos que se desvanecen de nuestros personajes, yuxtaponiendo historias cotidianas sobre el agotamiento del agua en la Ciudad de México.
