Red Shoes

(Zapatos rojos)
Carlos Kaiser Eichelmann | Drama

2022 | 75 minutes | Mexico, Italy

Tacho tends to his farm as life passes on. He receives news of his daughter’s death and travels to the city for her body, discovering a foreign world.


Life moves slowly and without much change for Tacho, an elderly man whose day to day revolves around tending to his land. But that stillness is disrupted when a phone call summons him to Mexico City.

What he discovers in the metropolis offers Tacho a chance at redemption. This poignant narrative is inspired by a 2009 art installation by Mexican artist Elina Chauvet denouncing violence against women.
