Toned for heartbreak from the beginning, La Carnada is a beautifully paced short film with a delectable colour palette and notable cinematography. Donned in baby blue, young Manny is tasked with the responsibility of earning money for his sick mother. He quickly finds himself rushed into the dangerous world of Mexican drug smuggling. You already know the ending innocent Manny is heading towards, but with credit to the film's gentle guidance, his naïve determination filters your perspective and you get lost in his story.
