to watch be­fore your trip. 1. Güeros (2014) This com­edy is set against the back­drop of stu­dent protests in the Mex­i­can cap­i­tal circa 1999 and fol­lows a group of friends search­ing for a leg­endary folk mu­si­cian. It’s con­sid­ered one of the best Mex­i­can films of the new mil­len­nium. 2. Los Olvi­da­dos (1950) This film fol­lows a group of des­ti­tute chil­dren who are dodg­ing ju­ve­nile de­ten­tion and gang war­fare in Mex­ico City. It’s an un­flinch­ing look into the city’s poverty that is de­void of pity: It’s a fe­ro­cious, funny and oc­ca­sion­ally sur­real so­cial cri­tique that has stood the test of time.
