Toro

16 minutes | DAVID FABREGA | 2019

In Mexico, a dreamy and solitary boy discovers his artistic soul and his sexual orientation within a rural and a conservative environment that will eventually drive him into exile. Toro tells the surprising story of the personal and professional transformation of a Mexican dentist, who became a talented painter in Canada under a new identity. Navigating between childhood and adulthood, Toro is a fabled documentary imbued with a magical realism and the liberating power of art and immigration.
