Descansos (Spanish: Resting Places) is a 2009 American neo-realist film written and directed by Chris Roybal, his second feature film and first to be released. The drama features, in neo-realist fashion, an ensemble cast of professional and non-professional actors.
The drama consists of eight vignettes that take you across Northern New Mexico. Following several different characters dealing with love and loss for people who are soon to die or already have died, the film spans Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Nambe, Espanola, Taos, and finally ending at the sacred Santuario de Chimayo.
The film premiered at the National Hispanic Cultural Center on February 6, 2009.
