Chiles Xalapeños

2008 NR

Experience daily life in Xalapa through this collection of short, interconnected films that blend together to showcase the diversity and local flavor, as well as a fascinating cast of idiosyncratic characters, in this typical Mexican city. Presented as a telenovela-style soap opera, the film shows how Xalapa's residents use humor to deflect the everyday troubles many Mexicans face in a country with a huge gap between rich and poor.
