Leslie Coons interviewed Director Alejandro Franco and Rodrigo y Gabriela for the Mexican documentary that closed SXSW 2014, “For Those About To Rock.” on March 15th. The story of Rodrigo y Gabriela, “For Those About to Rock” looks at the story of Mexican guitarists Rodrigo and Gabriela, two Mexicans who at a very early age decided to take the risk to pursue their dreams to live from what they loved the most: music.
The combination of their adventurous spirits, a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck, took them from performing at anonymous hotels and restaurants in Ixtapa,in their native Mexico, to – just a few years afterwards – playing their acoustic guitars on the stages of the most important venues and festivals around the world.
For Those About to Rock narrates their amazing and inspiring journey, which teaches its viewers that is possible to live one’s wildest dreams.
