Matías Meyer


The characters in my films are searching for freedom. And this is also what I'm looking for through cinema and what I try to offer to the audience.    


Graduated from Film Direction in Mexico City, he has a ten year experience as screenwriter, director and producer. He is a co-founder of Axolote Cine. His films Wadley, The Cramp and The Last Christeros have been programmed in film festivals like Toronto, Rotterdam and Locarno among many others. The Last Christeros established him as one of the most gifted young Mexican filmmakers, with a combination of minimalist cinema and historical depiction. The film was nominated for eight Ariel Awards, Mexico’s academy awards, including Best Film, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay. YO is his third feature film.
