“I have never seen a film in which the dentist is not a torturer and I wanted to show that they are actually human beings just like us, and that when they’re at a congress they party just like filmmakers do at a festival,” the co-writer for Y tú mamá también (2001) said.

Three men and one woman, all dentists, meet at a congress in the Riviera Maya. Fleeing from their own story of pain, they spend a crazy weekend together on a tiny island in the Mexican Caribbean that will leave a mark in all their lives.

“(The film) lent itself to exploring other issues through pain, such as technological alienation, infidelity, homosexuality, loyalty, professional zeal, envy; Amalgama is a portrait of masculinity and how it is understood today,” the director explained.

Amalgama, starring Manolo Cardona, Stephanie Cayo, Tony Dalton and Miguel Rodarte, and produced between Mexico and the Dominican Republic, is part of the official Mexican Feature Film section of the 18th edition of FICM.

Remember that Amalgama will be available at Cinépolis KLIC from October 31 at 5:30 p.m. to November 1 at the same time.
