With Gael Vázquez, José Antonio Becerril, Yoshira Escárrega

Seven-year-old Luis is shocked: he has seen his neighbors get murdered while everyone remains indifferent and ransacks the victims’ home. His own father takes advantage of the situation and steals a sofa to sell it in another town. Father and son will then set out on a journey across the mountain, dragging the sofa behind.

Over the course of just a few days, Luis witnesses the mystery of death, the frailty of adults, and the wonder of time, all amid games. We witness his growing pains while life seemingly refuses to give way.


“[A] "charming and nuanced film."” – Boyd van Hoeij, The Film Veredict

Estación Catorce represents a mixture of emotions that will captivate people of all ages and nationalities.” – Sandra Ramírez Ortega, Al Día

Notes on Film

“I chose to dwell on the child’s perception and the process by which facts become an experience. That point of view of a seven-year-old as he discovers the world and himself in it.

I explored in primary perception its hypnotic consistency, its electricity. The idea of life itself as a premiere. The world is an enigma. The pulse of childhood without past or future, a present that stretches with a different density. The still intact ability to detect the lost heart of things in a gesture, an insect, or an object. The complexities of the adult world and a violent environment that is normalized in children’s play.”

– Diana Cardozo, Director
