After studying and working abroad from his native Mexico, Cruz returned to start the production company Canana in partnership with Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna. Now located in Los Angeles, he’s brought us Ambulante California.
AmbulanteCA is a documentary festival started in Mexico by Bernal, Luna and Cruz. The festivals are being shown in communities that aren’t known for having film festivals.
On May first, I joined Cruz, Christine Davila (director, AmbulanteCA) and an anticipated MacArthur Park crowd to watch, Cesar’s Last Fast. A doc I highly recommend. Look for AmbulanteCA back in September in Los Angeles.
