ABOUT THE FILM

Note: Free Jolito comes from a play of words that involve the translation of the spanish word "frijolito", which means "bean". Also, the bean is a Mexican symbol because of its cultural value and since it is the main Mexican food. Free Jolito is a story that talks about the immigration problem between Mexico and the USA.

Synopsis: Jolito is an undeniable Mexican young man. So much so, that his body manifests as a giant bean. He engages on a journey to the USA, leaving his country. He has an identity crisis while being exposed to the "American dream".

without a doubt this was an extraordinary short film created by marcos bucay. it captures the essence of people who cross the border in search of that american dream. sadly freejolito lost his heritage and in a way was ashame of being of a Hispanic origin.

飽きさせない展開で楽しめた。割り切ってB級感に徹してるのがいい。エンドロールの唄もいい。
