One flick playing at SXSW 2012 that’s been flying under our radar is At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta guitarist Omar Rodriguez Lopez’s Los Chidos. To remedy this oversight, we now have a festival poster and still for ya! Better late than never, right?
Kim Stodel, María De Jesús Canales Ramírez, Manuel Ramos, Cecillia Gutiérrez, Erasmo Rodríguez, Bruno Champiz, Maimuna Achleitner Jiménez, Alejandro Rodríguez, and Monica Gúzman Tovar star.
Set amid the noisy outskirts of some unnamed Mexican metropolis, Los Chidos tells the story of the Gonzales family, proprietors of a tire repair junkyard sandwiched between two busy freeways. The Gonzales clan’s days are spent wallowing in lazy, mindless routine. When a confused American industrialist happens into the shop with a flat tire, the family’s place in the shame-free food chain is called into question. Family secrets begin emerging as love blossoms in Omar Rodriguez Lopez’s satirical dark comedy.
