Synopsis

Santa Teresa is a city in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Estimated population is 1.5 million people. Santa Teresa has gained further notoriety because of violence and as a major center of narcotics trafficking linked to the powerful Cartel, and for more than 1000 unsolved murders of young women from 1993 to 2003.

 

Concept
The film is composed by one long take, the final perfectly coincides with the beginning. You can loop it and make it infinite. Santa Teresa is the fictional name that Roberto Bolano's gave to Ciudad Juarez in his masterpiece novel "2666". The victim of SANTA TERESA, as a sort of Sisyphus, is forced in an infinite pattern death-resurrection-violence-death. The staging, cold, surgical, motionless, without editing cuts follows a detective who becomes murderers, then return to investigate, seamless
