Diego Luna revealed that being an independent filmmaker is both challenging and rewarding ---especially for a Mexican. At the Sundance Film Festival, Luna premiered his third feature as director called "Mr. Pig." In the midst of press conferences, Luna shared the meaning behind his new powerful flick, which targets the ups and downs of a parent-child relationship.

"It’s about a father having a second chance to reconnect with his daughter. It’s my need to say to my father, now that I’m a father, 'I get it, dad. I’m sorry. Let’s start all over again.'” the Mexican actor said to Fox News Latino. “This film is a love letter to my father,” Luna told the audience at the screening.

"Mr Pig," which is produced by Luna and Golden Globe winner Gael Garcia Bernal, made its world premiere earlier this week, where the actor's father and Mexican scenic director, Alejandro Luna, watched the film for the first time. According to Fox News Latino, Mr. Luna liked the movie a lot, but "he needed more time to process its sentiment and message."

With his new movie, Diego hopes that many people will reconnect with their fathers.
