Tropics draws an orbit around a Mexican farm. Scattered voices seem to revive and disturb the memory of the place. At the pace of a pulsating sound resonating within a space without end or gravity, the film attempts to stop time and men and reveals the ghost of a lost paradise. The film is the result of an exploration by French artist Mathilde Lavenne, who visited the region to meet the locals in their natural habitat, and was inevitably confronted with the colonial past of the region.
