Newcomer writer and director Alonso Ruizpalacios debuted his Mexican arthouse film, Gueros in 2014. It has since won a string of awards including, Best First Feature Award at the Berlin International Film Festival and is much lauded as a beautifully shot and poetic film.

Tomás, a wayward teenager is too much for his single mother to handle, so she sends him to live with his older brother, Federico, in Mexico City.  As he unwittingly inherits some of his brother’s problems, such as filthy sub-standard living conditions, his arrival brings about an action-packed and troubled quest of nostalgia and self discovery.
