FICGLB 13: Marcelo


Dir. Omar Yñigo, 2012. Mexico. 95’.

From an early age, Marcelo turned to comic books as a refuge to escape from bondage, fears and complexes in his life, at least momentarily. He dreamed that Platino-Kid, his favourite superhero, would one day come to rescue him from his pathetic existence. Years later, young Marcelo feels he’s found the embodiment of Platino-Kid in Julio, his eccentric neighbour, who aspires to become a porn star.
The film will be presented by its director, Omar Yñigo.
