I CARRY YOU WITH ME (TE LLEVO CONMIGO) | Official Trailer (2021)


As a young aspiring chef in Mexico, Iván works at a restaurant, hoping to land a spot in the kitchen while supporting the mother of his child. One night he meets Gerardo, a handsome teacher who, unlike Iván, is out as a gay man. Their chemistry is instant. The discovery of their romance, however, causes conflict, and he is told he can no longer see his son. In despair, Iván makes the arduous decision to cross the border to advance his culinary career, promising his son and newfound love he will return.

Acclaimed documentary director Heidi Ewing (Jesus Camp) makes her narrative debut with this bittersweet American Dream, based on a true-life New York City chef whose cuisine pays homage to his beloved country. In this affecting portrait of two unforgettable protagonists, Ewing rejects tidy answers in favor of leaning into—and bravely living into—the toughest questions. D: Heidi Ewing, US, subtitled, 2020
