It sounds like the premise of a Vice short, but Debajo del Cuero (Underneath the Leather) – a documentary about Tijuana motorcycle club Sólo Ángeles – was written, produced, and directed by an independent team of filmmakers from northern Mexico as part of a competition to produce a short film within 100 hours.

“To assume the biker identity goes beyond owning a motorcycle and a vest,” the group writes on their Facobook page, “it is a commitment to a lifestyle [that] includes risks, stereotypes, adventure, but above all, solidarity and fraternity.”


Debajo del Cuero screens along with 4 other submissions on Thursday, September 12 starting at 8 p.m. at Cineteca Tijuana, CECUT (Paseo de los Héroes #9350, Zona Rio).

Early arrival recommended to ensure seating - Free.

Starring: Sólo Ángeles, Mad Max, Mario Loredo

Directed by: Gabriel Arvizu Rodríguez

Written by: Juan Antonio del Monte

Screenplay by: Gabriel Arvizu Rodríguez

Produced by: Nina Pizá, Mariel Miranda, Fernando Escamilla, Juan Antonio del Monte
