The work of Rodrigo Garcia delves into the spiritual aspects of human realities in everyday life, finding the mystical in the connections between people.
In his film “Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her,” this idea was explored in the loosely connected lives of different women. In the HBO series “In Treatment,” talk therapy serves as the venue for exploring life’s deepest questions.
But in his latest film, “Last Days in the Desert,” Garcia goes straight for the spiritual behemoth, Jesus, and finds the humanity in one of his holiest experiences.
