Alonso Ruiz Palacios’s feature debut is a youthful and mischievous explosion of refreshing energy. With sharp black-and-white cinematography reminiscent of the 1960s, Güeros follows a trio of young men in 1999 with too much time on their hands.

Tomás (Sebastián Aguirre) is sent to Mexico City to live with his brother Federico (Tenoch Huerta), a student. Finding the university closed because of student protests, Tomás, Federico, and roommate Santos (Leonardo Ortizgris) bum around but also respond to the era’s political conscience. Playful and imbued with a joie de vivre that evokes the French New Wave, Güeros is a refreshing and poignant time capsule.
