Involved in her people Pola Weiss paints the Mexican people sensitively. As she makes the camera share in her impulsiveness, black/white and colour, sharp and blurred and all kinds of angles succeed each other. Her effusive character is mirrored in the rhythmically melting of synthetic colour patterns that link the scenes.
Los Muertos shows impressionistic pictures of a grave yard that resembles a living city, full of flowers. Guitar music accompanies shots of women and children.
