Just the other day I published a discussion with director Gerardo Naranja about his film Miss Bala, its unusual long-take sequences, the pleasures of its action and how it relates to the real situation surrounding the drug trade in Mexico.
Consider this clip and infographic as Exhibits A and B in fleshing that conversation out somewhat.
We’ll start with a shoot-out scene from the film. The titular Miss Bala is in here, amidst the ordered chaos. She’s the one in the skirt.
And now crossing over that oft-debated line between content and form, here’s an infographic that has been created to show something of the greater context of the film.
As you can see from the image, Miss Bala is in UK cinemas now. If you’re taken by the clip above, then I think you’ll absolutely love the whole film.
