Under the direction of Nicolas Ménard, and with Art Direction from fellow Nexus Director, Jack Cunningham, this epic stop-motion film takes viewers on a journey through 90 years of the intertwined history of Mexico and iconic beer Corona. Narrated by actor and producer Gael García Bernal and inspired by the art of Pedro Friedeberg, our studio team worked with Andy Gent’s team at Arch Model Studio to design, create and animate a cast of 71 miniature characters, 8 beautifully detailed sets and 350 individually made miniature glass bottles.

From post-revolution Mexico and the birth of Corona, the film leads us through the country’s Golden Age of Cinema and Peso Crisis to see Corona’s international growth, before we arrive in modern day Mexico.
