Berlin Winner ‘Gueros’ Acquired for North America by Kino Lorber

Kino Lorber has acquired North American rights to “Gueros,” Alonso Ruizpalacios’ Mexican coming-of-age comedy that won the best first feature award at last year’s Berlin Film Festival.

Gueros” is set in 1999, when a yearlong university strike both engaged and set adrift thousands of students in Mexico City. Two students, who had been living in angst-ridden limbo due to the strike, begin to look for strange ways to kill time.

The film was recently nominated for 12 Ariel Awards (Mexico’s equivalent of the Academy Awards), receiving more nominations than any other title.

Kino Lorber opens the film on May 20 at New York’s Film Forum before taking it to key urban markets throughout the summer. Digital release and home media releases are scheduled for later in the year.
