CCG: I mean Asma is an icon! I’m lucky to call her my good friend, and we were also extremely lucky to have her DJ at the wedding as well. It meant a lot to us to have her translate the emotion of the film into an original score that we felt really captures the spirit of the whole experience.
TG: There were some people who’d didn’t come to the wedding because of the way Michoacán is portrayed in the media. We definitely sought to make a film that highlights the beauty of this place and the community, because these are the types of stories that never make it to the mainstream. Ultimately it’s the people and communities that suffer because of the mischaracterization of areas that are labeled dangerous by the government.
TG: The day itself felt dream like - so much is happening and it’s hard to take it all in.
