Mueca Films is a production company that was born to tell stories.
    We believe in a way of shaping up and carry out projects. We build up images based on the idea that every shot and every word are connected to the rest.
    We aim at fictions that seem real and documentaries which look like a figment of the imagination. There are new ways of telling old stories.
    It was founded in 2012 by Juan and Facundo Ponce de León. So far, Mueca Films has produced audiovisual projects in Uruguay, Switzerland, Canada, and Haiti.
