Private Project


Cohete is an inhibited young man clueless in the world and isolated in his fantasies to also believe he has bad luck. During a party he meets Frida, a girl capable of keeping his feet on the ground. Cohete will do everything possible to not ruin things with her, and soon understands that it will take his feet off the earth far away from living the moment.

Director Statement

I consider art as an honest influence where it contains a space of answers in which also I do not see as a door to escape from my reality. My intention with this project is to demonstrate that mexican talent exists, a youthful talent that needs resources to be able to overcome the financial obstacles that arise, under the needs that a cinematographic work requires.

For me, the story of Cohete is special because it's a part of me that is reflected in the project, such as, in the character. I want others to find themselves in Cohete, to give input to their sensitivity and accept it. The story of Cohete is simple, a guy who does not allow himself to live in the present and to be lost in his illusions but regrets missing the opportunities.
