Jorge Gutierrez is the director of the wildly popular film “The Book of Life”. Since he was a young boy he would borrow his father’s video cameras to make his own movies. Now as a father himself, Jorge looks to work with his son once he gets a bit older on making their own cartoons.
Gutierrez worked with producer Guillermo del Toro on “The Book of Life”. The film follows the journey of Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart. Before choosing which path to follow, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears. Rich with a fresh take on pop music favorites, “The Book of Life” encourages us to celebrate the past while looking forward to the future.
The film stars Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana, Danny Trejo, Ron Perlman, Christian Applegate, Ice Cube, Diego Luna, Ana de la Reguera.
We had the great pleasure of talking with Jorge Gutierrez about the film and fatherhood as well.If you are looking for a family friendly and entertaining movie I would strongly suggest that you pick up “The Book of Life”.
