The heroine of the film Cosas insignificantes is a teenager called Esmeralda who has a very unusual hobby - she obsessively collects lost, forgotten or rejected things of people she doesn't know and then carefully places them into a box she keeps under the bed.
Director Andrea Martínez is currently working on her documentary called Cycle, which is intended to be an intimate portrait of two brothers, her father and her uncle, who spent eighty days in 1956 travelling by bicycles from Mexico to Canada.
