Image from the film En el Hoyo In the Pit
En el hoyo portrays the daily experiences, personal lives, and camaraderie of construction workers as they build the second story of Mexico City’s massive Periférico Freeway. Revealing both the nobility of some workers and the unseemliness of others, the film broaches the different ways that men and women endure and comprehend their undercompensated and often unacknowledged toil that remains hidden to millions of motorists and passersby.
