“Drifting,” Diego Luna’s English-language directorial debut premiered online earlier this week via the YouTube page of Chivas Regal. The short is the first in a two-part collaboration between Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal, that follows three friends, played by Pablo Cruz, Ari Brickmann, and Alexander DiPersia, who attempt to reignite their connection with reality, and each other, through a surprise visit before one’s impending marriage.
The films were produced by production company Canana, co-founded by Bernal, Luna, and Cruz, and Chivas Regal. The two films mark the first ones produced by Canana since their 2012 release “No,” starring Bernal, that recently received an Oscar nomination for best foreign-language film.
Bernal will direct the currently-untitled concluding film, which is scheduled to be released on February 18.
