(THIS FILM WAS PART OF OUR 2023 FESTIVAL LINEUP AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE ON THE SLAMDANCE CHANNEL) Manuel Portillo has been making imprints in concrete for years. Many consider it art, but to him it's simply part of his work pouring concrete for driveways and sidewalks. Locals hold a variety of opinions on his craft, but when the average passerby sees his prints, they just assume it was a child, an animal, or an accident.
