El Maestro Giuseppe Meazza

“El Maestro Giusseppe Meazza”, is a 25-­‐minute documentary, it is the testimony of my father, of how a Fortuneteller ring deceives people. The story raises questions about faith, about the people who have a need to believe in something, who want to get solutions and answers to their problems. It is a cruel story, which reveals the naivety of innocent people who are deceived with shoddy tricks that are a mix of Christian beliefs and rituals with elements of black magic, spells and witchcraft.

The objective of this documentary is to raise questions about faith and the need of people to believe in something supernatural, which can save them from their problems and the manipulation, and exploitation of this human condition. This documentary attempts to reflect the society in Mexico and, in an indirect way,speak of: corruption, impunity and emigration.
