Press reviews for “Al motociclista no le cabe la felicidad en el traje” by Gabriel Herrera

„Al Motociclista no le Cabe la Felicidad en el Traje, del mexicano Gabriel Herrera, fue seleccionado en la categoría des los Berlinale Shorts de la entrega 71 del Festival Internacional de Cine de Berlin, que se celebrará de forma híbrida en dos etapas, en marzo y julio.“ article in El Vigía

„In his Berlinale Shorts contender Motorcyclist’s Happiness Won’t Fit Into His Suit, Gabriel Herrera paints a nonconformist picture of the Spanish conquest of Indigenous lands, set in modern context.
