Production notes: 

The Centro de Capacitación Cinematográfica (CCC) was founded in 1975 with the purpose of training high-level professional filmmakers in the technical and artistic areas of cinematography. Ever since it opened, this centre has functioned as a film school in the widest sense of the word, as a centre of academic activity and cultural distribution relating film and -in general- the moving picture with all other artistic expressions. It has promoted different projects with film schools in Mexico and the rest of the world. It is a member of CICLECT.
