The film cycle Parejas creativas showcases the cinematography of director Arturo Ripstein and screenwriter Paz Alicia Garciadiego, both from Mexico City, who have been working together since 1986. Ripstein, who began his career under the mentorship of Luis Buñuel, is considered one of the greatest Mexican filmmakers of all time. His creative partner and wife, Garciadiego, is an award-winning screenwriter; their latest collaboration is La calle de la amargura. Both are recipients of the Premio Mirada Internacional 28° FCM-PNR (Festival de Cine de Madrid-Plataforma de Nuevos Realizadores).

When a young follower, Tomasa, becomes the “chosen one” who will serve as the sect’s new leader, unusual new rules are imposed on the community.
