AMOR VAQUERO(COWBOY LOVE)
/ Directed by Manuel Abramovich
Series in development
A gay cowboy community in Mexico reinvents the classical cowboy figure.
‘Amor vaquero’ is the telenovela these cowboys always wanted but never had: the one about their own love stories.
Just as Mexican society is penetrated by the culture of telenovelas as a way of mirroring desire, these cowboys have never had any representation to fantasize with; Mexican gay cowboy movies do not exist.
None of their stories have been represented on any screen. I want to make this project with them to fill this blank space.
