The Place Without Limits

El lugar sin límites

Directed by Arturo Ripstein
Mexico, 1978
Drama, LGBT+


The most complex and complete expression of the anti-machismo that gives such a forceful critical edge to so many of Ripstein’s masterworks, this film marked an important milestone in Mexican cinema through its unprecedentedly frank depiction of homosexuality and violently reactionary homophobia.
