For Those About to Rock: The Story of Rodrigo y Gabriela
Alejandro Franco, 2014
Mexico | Format: DCP | 83 minutes

Rodrigo Sánchez and Gabriela Quintero began their musical careers in Mexico City playing in metal bands. But when things didn’t seem to be going anywhere they decided to hit the road. Leaving behind their electric guitars, they end up busking on the streets of Dublin, performing acoustically. Drawing on influences from flamenco, salsa, and hard rock, Rodrigo y Gabriela’s exuberant new style secured them a fan base and ultimately stardom. Presented in association with Cinema Tropical.
