After already making the rounds in Mexico and countries in Latin America, the Gloria Trevi movie is making a pit stop at this year’s SXSW Festival.

“Gloria” traces back to the beginning of Trevis trajectory in the eighties and nineties and her controversial and toxic bond with her manager and then husband Sergio Andrade, telling the true story of their destructive relationship and Andrades abusive sexual behavior and all its consequences.
It also chronicles Trevis astounding fall from grace in 2000 when she was accused of running a sex cult and thrown in jail to her triumphant acquittal and release in 2004.
The biopic was directed by first-timer Christian Keller, who chased down the Trevis life rights and has been developing her story since 2005.
Actress Sofia Espinosa takes the role of the controversial Gloria Trevi; whereas, Marco Perez delivers the powerful role of Sergio Andrade.
