Biography

A leading Mexican writer-director since the late 1970s, Hermosillo attracted widespread attention with his fourth feature, "Passion According to Berenice" (1977), and has since enjoyed a string of commercial and critical successes. His work typically examines the fear of loneliness and the foibles of the Mexican middle classes. Probably his best-known film in the United States is the hilarious "Dona Herlinda y su hijo/Dona Herlinda and Her Son" (1984), the first gay-themed film made in Mexico and the best-selling Mexican film to date on the American video market.
