NF5M - "Nos faltan 5 más"
NF5M depicts a visual attack using the sensational media images of violent crime scenes in Mexico City as a metaphor to reflect on the narcotic desperation of today's fashion world.
From masks and disappearing corpses to fake news and visual manipulation on social media, NF5M takes you on a dark, haunting path of paranoia, fear and confusion. 5 'missing' creatives meet up for a rare shooting in the dimness of anxiety. Just try again as long as it takes.
