L.A.-based artist Germán Alonso is a walking, talking repository of creativity. Puppetry, animation, drawing, computer graphics and filmmaking are all mediums he has dabbled in, but his passion project is a live-action feature based on his comic book character MexMan. Despite his ambition, Alonso struggles with conspiring producers, an aging Hollywood actor and his own mental health issues as he fights to bring his Mexican cyborg-superhero to the big screen. MexMan is a fascinating documentary as well as a cautionary tale that is required viewing for anyone who has or intends to dabble in filmmaking. An instantly relatable underdog story through and through, this is a heartfelt and touching documentary about the fight to make your mark while struggling with the harsh realities of the world.
"MexMan can ultimately be placed alongside Lost in La Mancha and Jodorowsky’s Dune."
