Ricardo Silva (1984, Mexico) studied Sociology and has worked as a journalist with an interest in problems of violence. Silva made his first short film, Issbocet, in 2006. His feature film debut came eight years later with Navajazo (2014). Silva’s second feature film, William, the New Judo Master (20017), has its international premiere at IFFR and was made in collaboration with Omar Guzmán.
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Morgue is an experimental short film about what in Mexico is called “videohomes”, b-movies that go directly to video and exploit commercially successful formulas, usually about violence, drug trafficking, or sex. Crossing the boundaries between fiction and documentary, the film appropiates the styles, codes, and archetypes of this medium, giving an uncanny homage to a film industry that keeps alive the social imaginary
