2015 San Diego Latino Film Festival

Mexico Today Showcase

What defines Mexico today? That definition is no longer confined to the sensational ideas of drug wars and political corruption (although still in existence). These films are hallmarks of the greater concept of what Mexico is and what it can be.


  1. Mexico’s Most Wanted

    José Manuel Cravioto / Mexico Today Showcase / Mexico / 2014 / Action / 101 mins
    From producer Fernando Rovzar (Casa de Mi Padre) comes the story of Alfredo Ríos Galeana (Tenoch Huerta), Mexico’s public enemy number one during the 1980s. When he wasn’t sticking up banks, Alfredo spent his time singing charreadas wearing a Mexican wrestling mask. The film’s narrative seems too far-fetched to be factual, but ultimately proves that truth is indeed oftentimes stranger than fiction.
