La mesa

Adrian Garcia Gomez

La mesa (Adrian Garcia Gomez)


The filmmaker casts himself in the old Mexican films and American Westerns he grew up watching with his family in California. These disjointed vignettes explore memory, identity and queer desire, challenging popular representations of masculinity and traditional notions of power and vulnerability.


Adrian Garcia Gomez works in film, photography and illustration. His short experimental films, photographs and drawings have been exhibited around the world. He lives and works in Geneva.
