Today is the birthday of Mexican director, screenwriter and editor JAIME HUMBERTO HERMOSILLO. Often compared to Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar, Hermosillo’s films often explore the hypocrisy of middle-class Mexican values. He is also openly Gay and has explored such themes in his work. His films include Esmeralda Comes by Night, Forbidden Homework, El Misterio de Los Almendros, and the Gay classic Dona Herlinda and Her Son.
