El Junte | Picando Alante (Película)

Picando Alante is a dramedy that reveals a profound social critique of Puerto Rico today.

The celebrated Puerto Rican actors’ collective Teatro Breve presents the story of a lower-middle-class family trying to get into the business of growing and selling medical cannabis as a solution to their many financial plights.

Their plans collide with reality, and everything gets complicated.

Directed by Israel Lugo, Picando Alante features performances by Marisé Álvarez, Mikephillippe Oliveros, Lourdes Quiñones, Luis Gonzaga, Lucienne Hernández, Juan Pablo Díaz, René Monclova and Cristina Soler.

The film is a production of Teatro Breve and DeLuz.

During the Puerto Rico Film Festival (PRFF) 2022, Picando Alante received the Best National Film award.

“Picando Alante is the result of the creative process of a group of artists and professionals committed to doing excellent work, particularly with the development and evolution of the Puerto Rican film industry.

It’s a film with its own voice, with stories where we see ourselves reflected, where we can continue exploring and expressing our identity in the cinema”, Israel Lugo, director.
Meet Teatro Breve

Teatro Breve is a Puerto Rican cultural company founded in 2006 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, by a group of actors interested in exploring new forms of production and artistic creation.

As a collective, they maintain a consistent offering of content and a diversity of cross-platform experiences that offer fans new and more intimate ways to share with their favorite characters.

Among its most well-known productions and characters are the medieval-themed works Santurcia I and II, the Noche de Jevas collective, and characters such as the musical duo Luna y Vecky or Guanina, and “Davidcito: el de la voz Fina.” In addition to its theatrical projects, Teatro Breve has stood out for successful collaborations with prominent commercial brands in Puerto Rico.
