Throughout Bernardo Ruiz’s Harvest Season, the Guanajuato-born and Brooklyn-raised filmmaker offers audiences medium shots of the people who populate his documentary. He shows us Gustavo Brambila and Vanessa Robledo standing in front of their respective vineyards. He shows us Rene Reyes, an immigrant worker from Mexico showing his American visa, as well as a series of other unnamed and unidentified laborers who work those very same vineyards.
