Through the playful usage of cinematographic language and the multidisciplinary work spirit we create what we would like to see. Now, we're trying to finish what has become the most ambitious of our projects so far; Revoltoso.

Revoltoso is a film about cinema itself, set on 1913 in Mexico. Jabalito, a small one-eyed boar, is on the scene of one of the first filmed wars in history: the Mexican Revolution.

The look of the film is inspired in Cubism. Cubist artists were inspired by the way in which space and time were portrayed on a flat surface through cinema. They found a very uncommon way to express their vision of a fast and changing reality. We like to think of Jabalito, our protagonist, as a vanguard artist who happens to find his purpose in the midst of this revolutionary era.
