Rockin' Rudy's

In this 5-disc set, Mexican-American director Natalia Almada creates intense, genre-bending films that blur boundaries and the line between personal and the social. Drawing heavily on her Mexican background, Almada brings together disparate elements - archival audio recordings, home movie footage, literature, and closely observed moments - to create a distinctive and powerful body of work.

The 5-disc set includes:

USERS (2021): A fascinating exploration of the unintended and often dehumanizing consequences of the belief technological progress will benefit humanity. "Mind-blowing" - Rolling Stone

TODO LO DEMAS (EVERYTHING ELSE) (2016): Almada's first feature drama, following a solitary lifelong bureaucrat and her inner world. "Makes a strong impression." - IndieWire

EL VELADOR (2011): A documentary from the perspective of staff watching over a cemetery where many of Mexico's most notorious drug lords lie. "Exquisite" - Variety

EL GENERAL (2009): The story of Almada's great-grandfather - a revolutionary general and one-time President of Mexico with a complicated legacy. "Brilliant" - The Austin Chronicle

AL OTRO LADO (TO THE OTHER SIDE) (2005): A Mexican musician faces a stark choice between drug trafficking and escaping to the US. "Lyrical" - Variety.

ALL WATER HAS A PERFECT MEMORY (2005): A family tragedy leads to an exploration of remembrance. "Stunningly beautiful" - Visual Anthropology Review

Bonus short film:

ALL WATER HAS A PERFECT MEMORY "A masterfully crafted documentary of sheer power and beauty...captures the essence of pain, loss, remembrance, and cultural differences." - Tribeca Film Festival

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO EXTRAS:

  • Project 360 on El General (17 minutes)
  • The Making of Todo Lo Demás (15 minutes)
