Diego Luna at Sundance and He Bared His Soul

We Hung Out With Diego Luna at Sundance and He Bared His Soul.

We talked to Diego Luna about directing Mr. Pig during the Sundance Film Festival. We tagged along to his world premiere screening and took him on a ski lift ride the next morning. He shared his fears about filmmaking, the joy that sharing his art with an audience brings, and why he thinks his daddy issues make it into all his movies.

This is the second episode of our Panoramica series, where we follow Latino directors during the lead up to the world premiere of their most recent movie at big name film festivals.

The Mexican premiere of Mr. Pig is this Saturday, March 5 at the Guadalajara Film Festival (FICG).

“It’s very clear to me now that I have daddy issues and luckily, that’s what my work is about –
to reflect and to question yourself, to look inward.
That’s what cinema is about, at least the cinema that I like.”
– Diego Luna
