Death in Arizona is a futuristic documentary of lost love and a tale of a dying civilization. It is an autobiographical portrayal of a filmmaker who returns to his lost love’s empty apartment in pursuit of answers. The changing life outside as seen through the windows confront the man and his loss. Distant voices of a tribe in Arizona that survive a meteorite make their way into this third story apartment in an obscure Bolivian city.

Proyector Film Series is a platform in New York City to watch and discuss contemporary independent films from Mexico, which -despite their recognition at international festivals- get very limited distribution and exposure. The themes and characters that the works present fall outside of the cliches of Mexico portrayed by the media. The formal exploration of these films break away from commercial production schemes. The film series is curated by New York-based Mexican filmmaker and independent programmer Sebastian Diaz in diverse venues, such as UnionDocs and Maysles Cinema.
