Written and directed by Gerardo Naranjo, "Drama/Mex" stars Fernando Becerril, Juan Pablo Castaneda, Diana Garcia, Miriana Moro and Emilio Valdes. Its producers are Gabriel Garcia, Santiago Paredes and Moro. Garcia, Renato Ornelas, Yibran Assuad, Diego Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal, Pablo Cruz and Kyzza Terrazas are the exec producers.
The film, which premiered last year in the Critics Week sidebar at the Festival de Cannes before playing the Toronto International Film Festival and the AFI Film Festival in Los Angeles, is set in Acapulco and tells the interwoven stories of a suicidal old man, a 15-year-old runaway girl and a young couple.
" 'Drama/Mex' is a beautifully told story explored with fresh and provocative style," IFC Entertainment president Jonathan Sehring said.
