2023 - Mexico/France/Switzerland - Documentary

In Mexico, 350 000 people have been killed over the last 15 years by armed perpetrators, 30 000 of which are under 18. A WOLFPACK CALLED ERNESTO is a travel exploration to the bowels of the most fragile link on the chain: kids. The film follows the paths of the youths collectively named "Ernesto" – victims as well as sicarios – who in a certain moment of their lives had access to a gun, used it to kill, and soon became a part of the many pieces of a crime organization.
