Santiago Melazzini's short moving pictures--flip books--of literally black-and-white and figuratively colorful Mexican life are as low-tech as it gets: watch the masked luchadores bounce off the wrestling-ring ropes and then fall to the mat, watch the boxer punch, the Mariachi band play, or the tequila have its way, and then watch it all again backwards. An elemental pleasure and an ideal gift.
