Video: Julieta Venegas - "Abel"

Here is a promotional video for Abel, the first fiction film by Mexican actor turned director Diego Luna. The movie was premiered earlier this year to rave reviews and was just presented at the Cannes film festival to equally enthusiastic reception. It’s said to be a well-stylized film with a lot of heart, or at least enough to be considered a crowd-pleaser. This is a behind the scenes, behind the movie footage featuring some really charismatic kids and "Abel", an original song from Julieta Venegas. The singer has contributed to Mexican cinema before, most notably in Amores Perros and Quemar las Naves. The song was produced by Yamil Rezc (Hello Seahorse!) and the film’s music supervision was under the always-reliable Lynn Fainchtein.

Update: You can now download the song for FREE at Reactor's Zona de Descargas.
