Ciudad isn’t a traditional portrait of a city; rather, the documentary offers a layered encounter with what emerges from within it. Carlos F. Rossini invites Maya Goded, Julio Hernández Cordón, and Nuria Ibáñez to co-direct an exploration of the gestures of Mexico City. The four directors choose their own unique starting points to immerse the viewer in an experience that presents a series of images—almost mirages— of this monumental metropolis.
