Last week, we told you about the eight exciting new titles from Martin Scorsese’s World Cinema Foundation that we are making available on our Hulu channel and including in our ongoing 101 Days of Summer series. If you’ve been watching all week, you’ve seen some incredible and unique films, from such disparate, far-flung locations as South Korea, Turkey, and Senegal, available for the first time in the U.S.
Today’s selection is a powerful work from Mexico. The politically minded drama Redes, directed by Emilio Gómez Muriel and future Oscar winner Fred Zinnemann (High Noon), is a documentary-like take on the daily grind of fishermen on the country’s Gulf Coast. When one of them loses a son, in circumstances that could easily have been avoided, he and his coworkers unite against the powers that be. Watch it below or at Hulu. And remember, if you sign up for Hulu Plus for just $7.99 a month, you can see all of these and the now more than eight hundred other Criterion films streaming there commercial-free, anytime.
