What were you smoking when you did this movie?
I was smoking my mother’s thoughts.

Really? Speaking of which, I noticed you choked when you mentioned her during the Q&A after the movie. She liked the movie, so she must be an amazingly open-minded woman.
My mother is a very special woman with an unbelievable sense of God. She’s the most important thing in my life. I choked because she’s getting old and one day I will no longer have her to give me advice.

You seemed pleasantly surprised that so many people stayed at the theatre after the screening. You’re well aware that your movie is not for everyone.
Of course. During festivals, it’s very common that directors say, ‘We’ll dominate this festival.’ I don’t come to dominate anything. I come to participate in a dialogue. I just have a very particular way of speaking.

Your movie subtly explores internal racism among Latinos, yet you rightly decided to mainly focus on misogyny.
There were a lot of themes I wanted to explore, but had to choose a few instead of ending up with a four-hour movie. I chose abuse against women because it always amazed me that [in Latin America] we adore the Virgin Mary, but all the other women are treated like second-class citizens.

I find it very symbolic that you chose Molotov’s “Frijolero” to start and end the movie with. Whether you love it or hate it, Los Chidos is a Molotov cocktail in the balls.
Yes. It’s possible that a lot of people won’t like Los Chidos, but it causes an immediate reaction that will start a discussion about this subject. And that’s the important thing about the movie.

Yeah, I want to see this one more, but it sounds like a mindfuck. All the audio was done in post. How fucking strange. Sucks cause I may never see either movie.

To the guy asking about the music, there is no original music from Omar in the movie. Most of the songs were Spanish songs by a lot of artists I have never heard of and towards the end "Down in the Hole" by Tom Waits was used.

Like the interviewer mentioned, I noticed Omar getting choked up when he mentioned his mother and I wondered about it, though I figured it was personal. If I had to guess though, perhaps she isn't in good health. Remember when ORLG canceled a tour for family issues? I don't think we ever heard what was going on with that, perhaps it was Omar's mother that had taken ill. Best wishes to them if so. I know Omar said his parents were both in the audience though, so there's that.

they are totally writing new stuff.

I KNOW IT

why would you cash grab JUST for coachella when you could cash grab for coachella and 3 more albums... not like omar's solo stuff is making money.

Films are super expensive and omar is out of his snobby, "I would never go to an ex girlfriend" phase.

HE IS FUCKING HIS EXES TOOOOOOO
