Cine Latino covers, well, all things relating to Latino culture and the movies, every Friday.
Thanks to our friends at Pantelion Films, we are happy to share with you this exclusive clip for Hecho en Mexico. The clip touches on the cultural and religious impact of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico. Needless to say, it's no surprise that Mexico holds the second largest Catholic population in the world, after Brazil, with over 92 million practicing Catholics.
"You cannot understand Mexico without the Virgin of Guadalupe."
From the official synopsis - Director, Duncan Bridgeman weaves a beautiful 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 of some of the most popular artists of Latin America such as Alejandro Fernández, Diego Luna, Calle 13, Lila Downs , Los Tucanes de Tijuana, and many more leading personalities. The result is an inspiring and often funny musical road trip through the modern day "Mexicanity", which resonates globally.
