Drama, Globalization, LGBTQ I Mexico, 2022, 99 min. Spanish w. subtitles
The film tells a beautiful story about one woman’s journey, and the painstaking process of making an artisanal bottle of tequila. Iron willed businesswoman María García (Teresa Sánchez), is the owner of Dos Estaciones (Two Stations), a once-majestic tequila factory now struggling to stay afloat. It is the final holdover from generations of Mexican-owned tequila plants in the highlands of Jalisco. The film clearly evokes the loneliness and indomitable strength of a woman who is single-handedly carrying not only the economic future but cultural pride of her community on her shoulders.
