Description
 
When Mama Santos declares, "Something bad is going to happen" in Presagio, it becomes a bad omen rather than a mere statement. Her provincial town quickly transforms from a close-knit village into a virtual ghost town. Few townsfolk can find work; guilt and hatred permeate the community with devastating results. As Mama Santos (Anita Blanch) watches one resident after another vacate the premises, her self-fulfilling prophecy comes full circle. Written by Nobel Prize winner Gabriel Garcia Marquez, with photography by Gabriel Figueroa (Los Olvidados), and directed by Luis Alcoriza.

Luis Alcoriza---Mexico---1974---118 mins.
