Hecho en Mexico Trailer – en Cines de Los Angeles Noviembre

October 23, 2012 at 3:04 AM ET [American Entertainment Marketing] – Ya esta disponible el trailer oficial del documental “Hecho en Mexico” en cines de Los Angeles, California el 30 de Noviembre 2012.

Los últimos años han sido difíciles para México. Las noticias parecen ser todas malas. Pero hay una realidad distinta oculta en la vida diaria. En esta película del director Duncan Bridgeman, se entretejen canciones con conversaciones sobre temas universales. Es una colaboración entre las mentes mexicanas más creativas, artistas queridos y héroes desconocidos de todo el país. Todos ellos reflexionan – ya sea hablando o cantando – sobre temas universales como la muerte, el nacimiento, las fronteras, las adicciones, la Virgen de Guadalupe, entre otros más.

El resultado es una reflexión musical inspiradora, una experiencia sensorial, un mosaico de voces, una imagen múltiple y celebratoria de nuestra humanidad y por ende, de nuestra identidad.

Esta película no es un documental, no es tampoco ficción: es un homenaje, una fiesta y una rara inocencia. Es además una mezcla entre la meditación e investigación y ¿por que no admitirlo también? Es un delicioso relajo. Todo esto y más es Hecho en México.
