Event description

Description

FELIZ AÑO TIJUANA is a favorite of people who have had the chance of watching it because of the way it was concived and for it’s freshness. It fuses fact and fiction by transposing an experience from lead actor Luis Deveze's life to the streets of the titular border town, where the film was shot guerilla-style over the actual New Year's Eve and improvised by a mixed cast of actors and non-actors alike

Alejandro, a native of León but long-time resident of Los Angeles, where he worked as a Chicano Studies professor until recently, finds himself stranded in Tijuana on New Year's Eve while attempting to return to his family in Mexico. 

As he walks around downtown he has a surprise encounter with Ana, a former student, who invites him to celebrate the new year with her Mexican boyfriend Luis and his friends.

As the celebration progresses it unleashes a roller coaster of emotions in Alejandro that bring to the surface his inner conflicts of romance, belief and identity.
