La fórmula secreta

Back to listing
This little known 42-minute film, which won an open experimental filmmaking competition in 1965, is extraordinary and unsettling.  “If you had to summarise the film”, noted director Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Roma) at the screening of the restored film in Lyon in 2017, “it would be the history of a patient who is given a transfusion of Coca Cola on his deathbed.”
