About the Museo 💬

  • Inspired by true events of the biggest heist in Mexico's history.

When burglars broke into Mexico's Museum of Anthropology on Christmas Day, 1985, they made off with some of the country's most valuable national treasures. The National Anthropology Museum still is considered one of Mexico's most treasured, iconic almost sacred sites. This was one of the biggest museum heists in history and shocked and puzzled authorities for a long time until it was discovered that the perpetrators were a duo of bored veterinary school students in their 30s. MUSEO chronicles the most infamous loot of Mexico from a personal view. Shot over 3 months in locations in Mexico City, Acapulco, and Palenque, this was the first time a team was allowed to film inside of the iconic Anthropology Museum.

MUSEO is a sardonic cautionary tale that underscores the old adage: you don't know what you have until you lose it.

Well into their 30s, Juan Nuñez (Gael García Bernal) and Benjamín Wilson (Leonardo Ortizgris) still can't seem to finish veterinary school or leave their parents' homes. Instead, they wallow in comfortable limbo in the district of Satelite, Mexico City's version of an American suburb. On a fateful Christmas Eve, however, they decide it's finally time to distinguish themselves by executing the most infamous cultural artifacts heist in all of Mexican history.

Excusing themselves from the traditional family dinners and seizing on the holiday's lax security - not to mention the sheer improbability of their crime - they loot Mexico's iconic National Anthropology Museum of its most precious pieces and embark upon a misadventure that will forever change their lives.

The magnitude of the theft exceeds the amateur thieves' expectations, and by the very next morning, they realize, too late, the full scope and implications of their actions. Stumbling through the next steps of their ill-conceived plan, they leave everything behind and set off on a journey that takes them from the Mayan ruins of Palenque to the decadent underworld of Acapulco Bay in a futile effort to fence treasures so valuable and recognizable that no one dares acquire them.

''Why ruin a great story with the truth?''
