LOGLINE

 

In the bucolic hills of the Jalisco Highlands, iron-willed businesswoman María García is the last in a long line of Mexican-owned tequila factories in the region. While María fights the impending collapse of her family business, her genderqueer hairdresser, Tatín, opens her salon and searches for stability love amongst the conservative townspeople. 

ABOUT JUAN PABLO GONZALEZ

 

Named one of Filmmaker Magazine’s “25 New Faces of Independent Film” in 2015, Juan Pablo González is a Mexican filmmaker whose work has screened at Cannes, Rotterdam, IDFA, the Lincoln Center of New York, the National Mexican Cinematheque, Habana, Ambulante, among others. He’s received support from the Mexican National Fund for Culture and the Arts, the Sundance Institute, the Venice Biennale and the Austin Film Society. He currently teaches in the Film Directing Program at the California Institute of the Arts. Juan Pablo's practice spans between fiction and non-fiction cinema. His work is primarily set in Atotonilco el Alto, the town where he grew up in rural Mexico. Juan Pablo is concerned with representations of the rural, drug violence, immigration and the intersection between urban and country life in different communities around the Jalisco Highlands. His work reflects deeply on the mutability of memory and its trace across the spaces we inhabit.
