Originally produced by FiGa Films in 2015.
Winner of Best Film at the Morelia International Film Festival, "Yo" is based on a short story by Nobel laureate J.M.G. Le Clezio. "My name is Yo, I'm 15 years old, or that's what they tell me," explains the protagonist (Raul Silva) early on. A strong young man with limited mental skills, he says he is fifteen years old, although he seems to be older. He lives and works in his mother's restaurant by a busy freeway. Yo loves his mother but hates her lover. One day he meets Elena, an eleven year old girl, who will change his life forever.
