De día y de noche

Directed by Alejandro Molina
Mexico, 2010

A quiet drama set in a future where overpopulation has forced the state to take an innovative approach to population control. In the case here, they have implanted the population with an enzyme which has resulted in people who are only awake during the day or at night – never crossing paths.
