“A musical film to remember … Hécho en Mexico is a gem that feels like a future classic.” – Jasmine Garsd, NPR
The vibrantly entertaining documentary Hécho en Mexico weaves together a beautiful, colorful and rhythmic cinematic tapestry composed of original songs, conversations, reflections, wisdom and humor featuring many of the greatest performers and sharpest minds of Mexico today. The film showcases the richness of Mexican music both young and old, from traditional music to pop, rock, and rap blended with interviews and songs from some of the most popular artists of Latin America, including Alejandro Fernández, Diego Luna, Calle 13, Lila Downs, Los Tucanes de Tijuana, and many more leading personalities. The result is an inspiring, fresh and often funny musical road trip through the modern day “Mexicanity.” (Dir. by Duncan Bridgeman, 2012, Mexico, in Spanish with subtitles, 88 min., Rated R)
