More Info IMDb

Agent Jesus Juarez (Joquín Cosío), bettern know in the neighborhood as “Chucho” has always played the Devil in his town's Nativity Play.

This Christmas, the local church has a new pastor, father Edmundo Posadas (Carlos Cobos). When he recasts the role, the two men engage in a battle between good and evil to recover what is theirs by tradition.

"PASTORELA is a film that delights in a good gag, both of the visual and spoken variety, and manages the difficult task of balancing disparate visual elements and styles with seeming ease. Helping greatly are his experienced and charismatic cast, particularly the menacing Joaquin Cosio as Chucho and Carlos Cobos as Father Mundo." – Todd Brown, TWITCHFILM.COM
