CARIÑOS (2018)

"Who do you love?"

POSTERS_NEW_CAR.png

WATCH / BUY

 
 

SYNOPSIS

Cariños is a Serialized Cinematic Experience that examines who, how, and why people love. Throughout 2017, we follow a group of New Mexicans as they collide in unconventional and unexpected ways all while trying to both uncover and keep hidden secrets that could change their lives forever.

Cariños is unique because two distinct versions of this experimental fictional drama exist. The first version played out over the course of 2017 and broke the film into 53 individual scenes, or episodes, that premiered weekly online until its conclusion on the last day of the year. The second version of Cariños compiles all of the episodes into a single, unified feature film that asks viewers if there is actually any one right way to love.
