Pepito

The absurdist dramedy follows a mother who wants to hold onto the image of her little boy, Pepito — even though he's all grown up. This all comes to a head when she accompanies him to confession, where he has a panic attack, forcing the mother and son to confront their shared identity crisis. This universal story is a love letter to mothers everywhere, told through the lens of the Latino experience. Written by Isaac Garza and directed by Eman Esfandi.

“Being around your parents, you suddenly become a different person around them. I turn into that little boy they want and want to keep, so we explored that in an absurd sense.” —Isaac Garza, writer
