Hola Mexico Film Festival

We were recently invited to take part of the Hola Mexico Film Festival which took place at the Regal Cinemas LA Live in Downtown Los Angeles. The Hola Mexico Film Festival is the largest festival of Mexican cinema outside Mexico!

We attended the red carpet for “Sin Filtro” (No Filter), which beat out Star Wars: The Force Awakens at the Chilean box office in its first weekend.

Watch our exclusive interviews with Hola Mexico Film Festival director Samuel Douek, Chilean director Nicolas Lopez, Aislinn Derbez, and Mauricio Ochmann.

Sin Filtro stars Pía (Paz Bascuñán) who is on the verge of a nervous breakdown: Her boss humiliates her, her husband ignores her, her stepson does not respect her, and her best friend does not listen to her. Pía has a strong chest pain and after trying everything to heal she decides to undergo an acupuncture treatment. The Chinese doctor discovers that Pía’s pain is caused by repressed feelings and with an ancient technique he takes out the filter. From now on, Pía will not filter and realize that the only way to heal is to say everything she thinks… which will not bring good results.
