Pilsen is written and directed by Rick Padilla. A story of converging cultures, Pilsen is a Mexican neighborhood located in Chicago. The murder of a Mexican immigrant brings his father from Guadalajara to Chicago to claim his son’s body. The resulting journey travels through the art and culture of José Clemente Orozco, found in both Guadalajara and Chicago. This story examines ethnicity, culture and ultimately the “man of fire” inside all of us.
