We made this project to express our stand against violence. Revoltoso is a stop-motion short film that emphasizes the importance of using art as a way to stand against destruction.
It is a film about cinema itself, set on 1913 in Mexico. Jabalito, a small one-eyed boar, is on the scene of one of the first filmed wars in history: the Mexican Revolution. Of all the wild boars that inhabit Don Gonzalo’s hacienda he is the only one not fully domesticated. He prefers to enjoy his freedom, even though everyone thinks of him as a mess. In the revolutionary confusion, Jabalito accidentally discovers a film camera.
