Brief thoughts on DIRTY FEATHERS (2021) Neighboring Scenes 2022

This a moving portrait of a homeless community of the Mexico US border.

Shot in stark black and white with an eye toward portraiture, the film pulls us in a way that walks a perfect line between typical documentary and a verité portrait. It’s a film with a great respect for everyone on screen, with director Carlos Alfonso Corral  giving us a beautiful film that transcends typical films like this, transforming it into a song of humanity and life.

This is absolutely lovely and highly recommended.
