‘Mr. Pig’ A Love Letter To Diego Luna’s Father & Mexico – Sundance Studio
Diego Luna’s third narrative feature directorial Mr. Pig is a road trip through Mexico, through the eyes of an American farmer. Danny Glover plays Ambrose, who on the edge of losing his farm, embarks on a road trip with his large prized pig to find him a new home south of the border. Maya Rudolph plays Ambrose’s daughter Eunice. He’s been evading her, and hasn’t kept her in the fold on his health situation, which is deteriorating. For Glover, Mr. Pig was a connection to his past, while for Luna, “It’s a love letter to my father and at the same time to my country.” Here the trio discuss their passion for the project. There’s one last screening left for Mr. Pig on Saturday at the Grand Theatre at 6:15PM.
Deadline’s Sundance production team includes Leica Camera USA, Rotolight, Ben Turok and Sydney Cahoon as camera operators, John Kreidler as DP and Sal Castellanos as editor. Indignation screens Friday at the Redstone Cinema, Saturday at Perry’s Egyptian Cinema and Sunday at The Grand Theatre.
