Watch: Diego Luna's English Language Directorial Debut 'Drifting'

Actors Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal have a lot in common. In addition to being Mexican heartthrobs and best friends since birth, they are also both budding directors who co-own Canana Productions, a company that has produced projects helmed by each. Most recently, the company co-produced a two-part short film project for Chivas Regal, with Luna directing the first segment, released earlier this week, and Bernal directing the second, as-of-yet-unreleased segment. And now you can take a look at what they’ve made.

Drifting” is helmed by Luna and marks his English language directorial debut. The story centers on three old friends and a surprise visit before one in the trio’s impending marriage. Previous directing credits for Luna include “J.C. Chavez,” a documentary about the famous Mexican boxer, and “Abel,” a drama that showed at Sundance and was generally well-received. His next feature will be his highest-profile project yet — “Chavez,” a biopic of civil rights leader Cesar Chavez starring Rosario Dawson and Michael Pena, which we’d guess will pop up on the festival circuit this year.

But “Drifting” looks a bit of fun, and likely allowed Luna to be a bit more loose and playful behind the camera. If you dig what you see below, look out for Bernal’s follow-up, to be released on February 18th.
