Directed by Nicolás Pereda

Director Nicolás Pereda revisits the characters of Together in an expanded universe of Mexico City where Gabino—still looking for his dog—now lives with his mom and works as a mover, a gig that allows him, and us, a window onto lives in transition. Into this narrative patchwork, Pereda ventures into explicit stylistic experiment. Are we watching a fi lm, rehearsals to a film, or a blend of both? The ambiguity jibes with the messiness of the improvised lives on screen.

Producer: Nicolás Pereda, Catalina Pereda. Screenwriter/Editor: N. Pereda. Cinematographer: Alejandro Coronado. Cast: Gabino Rodriguez, Teresa Sanchez, Francisco Barreiro.
