🏆 The serie’s director Ernesto CONTRERAS won the Best Director Award in International Panorama

Tengo Que Morir Todas las Noches is a snapshot of the sophisticated and exclusive gay nightlife of one of the most emblematic clubs in 1980s’ Mexico City, where people living under the weight of a repressive society that marginalized them felt the need to express an exacerbated sense of freedom. Through the eyes of a young man eager to explore the world and live freely in the capital city, the series recreates a slice of life and a decade that shook the world.

Our take

A multi-character tale of the turbulent 1980s in Mexico City, when the emergence of LGBT countercultures from the capital’s party scene comes up against a waning regime and the dramatic arrival of AIDS.
