We Are Mari Pepa
Samuel Kishi Leopo was born in Mexico. He studied audiovisual arts at the University of Guadalajara. His films include the shorts Memoria Viva (06), Luces Negras (09) and Mari Pepa (11) and his feature debut We Are Mari Pepa (13).
Loose, fresh and hugely enjoyable, We Are Mari Pepa tells the story of a horny teenage Guadalajara-based rock quartet. Exuberant and playful, and boasting a keen understanding of adolescent group dynamics, this is a multi-character coming of age story that exudes irreverence, affection and an infectious rhythm all its own.
