Intimidad is an in-depth portrait of Cecy and Camilo Ramirez, ages 21, whose dream is to buy land and build a house in Reynosa, Mexico so their 2 year-old daughter, Loida can live with them. Loida lives with Cecy's mother in Santa Maria, Puebla. Intimidad slowly unravels, showing how the everyday politics of living on minimum wage Ð without a functioning infrastructure Ð strains their relationship and sacrifices their own intimacy.One year later they return to Puebla during Christmas vacation to reunite with their daughter. What seems like a satisfying reunion and temporary relief from the harsh environment of Reynosa turns into a confusing dilemma between Cecy and Camilo. The conflict threatens to transform the course of their lives and suspend efforts to improve their living conditions, thereby further straining the family's ability to live together. Intimidad challenges viewers to understand Cecy and Camilo as people first and interpret their complex lives through a simple story. Intimidad was filmed over the course of 4 years and mixes digital verite with Super 8 and 16mm film stock.
