Event Originally produced by FiGa Films in 2013.
Summary Nominated for a Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival, this "rough-and-tumble, enjoyable yarn about a group of 16-year-old punk-rock wannabes" (Variety) follows Alex, a 16-year-old teenager trying to write a new song, find a job, have his first sexual experience. As the summer continues, Alex realizes that things are going to change forever and that he will have to grow up and learn to say goodbye. "A gently endearing portrait of four amiable Mexican teenagers feeling their way toward adulthood... a knockabout naturalism that feels honest and real. The movie is at its best, however, when talk recedes and everything goes quiet. In the small, wordless interactions of Alex and his ailing grandmother (a wonderfully expressive Petra Iñiguez Robles), we hear the smack of innocence colliding with experience." - New York Times "A sweaty, urgent, beautifully honest bliss out." - Village Voice
