This is another decisive step towards our goal of transforming our company into a recognized player in the field of content, said Juan Bernardo González, partner at Whiskey Content. Since we started working with Jundos on the movie ‘Immersion,’ we have understood that our companies naturally complement each other, he added.
We collectively explore a variety of themes, but the common elements include questions of social structures, organizations and dependencies structured from an individual worldview, said Francisco Herv, co-founder of Jundos Movies. We look for stories from all over the world, but very rooted in local realities, whether they are miners in the Atacama desert in Chile or a private school in Patagonia, he added.
Thirdly, our goal is to tell these stories from the author point of view, but through the prism of the usual Movie genres to appeal to a wider audience, he continued: We currently have plans to attract thrillers, including westerns. , comedies, crime dramas. and some rudiments of adventures and superheroes. .
Founded in Mexico City in 2009 by González and Arturo Pereira, Whiskey Content focused on creating advertising content until 2018, when they began co-producing Inmersión and La Caja (La Gaja), with a second Movie. By Lorenzo Vikas, winner of Venice, it was screened in the world circle in the official competition of the Venice Movie Festival.

For many years, we have been working alone like lone wolves. Usually in the creative process we find that the sum is greater than the value of the parts, said Herv. Variety So about the link. The same philosophy drives his new collaboration with Whiskey Content.
Raviola admits: “Since we founded Jundos, we have considered ourselves a production company that seeks to adjust the artistic vision to the search for an increasingly wide audience.”
The name of our company arises from the valence that we give to working together because we understand that we get along well together. Whiskey is a great collaborator with us, since we share a vision of the future of Ibero-American cinema.
