The Nativity Play (Pastorela)

For as long as he can remember, Chucho has played the Devil in his town's traditional Nativity Play. This Christmas, however, things have changed.

When Chucho arrives late to auditions, the new church pastor, Edmundo Posadas, has already cast all the roles. Now, Chucho must enter an epic battle between good and evil - a battle between himself and the new pastor to recover the role that is rightfully his.

From the director of La Cabeza De Juan Perez, Emilio Portes introduces us to a new world of Mexican comedy.

Winner of Best Film, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay, among other awards, at the Mexican Academy of Film Ariel Awards.
