On the outskirts of Mexico City, over 50 years ago, a family began making and selling piñatas to the local community. Nowadays, the whole town is involved.


The Piñata King takes a look inside the life of this town, and the head of the family who started it all. We heard about the town via a friend in Mexico City, and decided to venture down there on a whim. After speaking to a few people, we met Francisco who was keen to share his (and the town's) story. He gave us a tour of the place, ducking in and out of numerous workshops and sharing the tricks of the trade. It was extraordinary to see an entire community practically dedicated to the same trade, living harmoniously in this peaceful town. Special thanks go out to Francisco, his family and all the town's people for their unwavering hospitality.
