This chapter presents an interview with filmmaker Fernando Eimbcke. His first feature, Duck Season (Temporada de Patos, 2004), offers a salutary lesson in adolescent friendship and love. His follow up Lake Tahoe (2008) won the FIPRESCI prize at the Berlin Film Festival. The film deals with the uneasy passage from adolescence to adulthood. The interview covered topics such as the support of the Sundance Screenwriter's Lab in the development of Lake Tahoe; whether school is essential for young filmmakers in Mexico, and its role in producing another remarkable generation of Mexican filmmakers; what winning the FIPRESCI prize means to Eimbcke on a personal level and in terms of enhancing his reputation outside of Mexico; and the directors that he draws inspiration from.

Keywords:   Fernando Eimbcke, Duck Season, Temporada de Patos, Lake Tahoe, interviews, film directors, Mexican filmmakers, filmmaking
