Juan Urgell


Logline: In the darkness of the central valleys of Oaxaca, a blind artisan takes advantage of the humidity of the night winds to create enormous sculptures of red clay. Like a wise grandfather, he composes everyday poems that express his humility and devotion to art. "A poet in the dark" is the intimate portrait of the artisan José García Antonio, a passionate 72-year-old man who demonstrates how creativity can be found even in the most hidden corners of Mexico.
