In Dry Blood (Sagre Seca), various historical moments of political activism in Mexico are superimposed and corroded on the emulsion of expired film. Footage from the International Women's Day in 2017 is coupled with the recording of a powerful speech about the gruesome aftermath of the 2006 civil unrest in San Salvador Atenco.

Dry Blood is one of the three films made in 2017 by Colectivo Los Ingrávidos that speaks directly about gendered violence against women in Mexico: one from the perspective of the mothers (¿Has Visto?), the other of the daughters (Sangre Seca), and one from the disappeared victims (Coyolxauhqui).
