Biography
He began his professional acting career on stage at the age of seven, and by the age of 12 had made his television debut in the Mexican soap opera El Abuelo y Yo.

He then went on to star opposite childhood friend Gael Garcia Bernal in Alfonso Cuaron’s Y Tu Mama También. He will next star in Mr. Lonely, and the Spanish-language films El Bufalo de la Noche (The Night Buffalo) and Sόlo Dios Sabe (What God Knows). These latter films – both premiered at the Sundance Film Festival - –mark Luna’s foray into producing.

Special Screenings

JC Chάvez / Diego Luna

JC Chάvez is a documentary that tells the story of a Mexican boxer who has gone from being a struggling car washer, to the height of success, to the ignominy of defeat and failure. Not only does it narrate the achievements of a champion, but it also allows us to understand the human and social aspects of the life of one of the most important personalities of recent Mexican history. Presenting interviews with leading figures of the boxing industry, journalism, sports and politics, as well as an intimate portrayal of Chάvez in his everyday life and the relationship with his son, this film leaves room for personal conclusions; it is an excercise that attempts to understand the complex link between fame and politics.
