Synopsis: 

A work of lyrical ethnography, Everardo González’s Drought explores the isolated community of Northeastern Mexico’s Cuates de Australia ranch. Cuates’ inhabitants struggle with annual droughts, yet González emphasizes the richness of their way of life rather than their woes. The result is one of the most singular cinematic experiences on offer this year.
