Institute History

  • 2002 Sundance Film Festival


Y Tu Mama Tambien is the highest-grossing film in Mexico's history and has been spectacularly received at major film festivals around the world. We are privileged to have director Alfonso Cuarón on our Latin American film jury and to present a special screening of his unforgettable film. Visually gorgeous, the film follows two best friends, bursting with sexual energy (as only high school boys do), as they take a journey with a beautiful Spanish lady from hypermodern Mexico City to the stunning, panoramic countryside. Cuarón combines hilarious and playful intensity with deep sorrow and resonating insights into life, love, and friendship.
