Diego Luna knows the best conversations come at the dinner table.
In the Amazon Original Series, Pan y Circo, Lune travels across Mexico to share a meal for various meaningful discussions. The conversations, moderated by the Mexican actor, comprise of politicians, activists, and different personalities on general topics of contemporary societies.
Luna traveled into Baja California, Puebla, Quintana Roo, and Mexico City. Renowned Mexican chefs provided the dinners during these conversations.
The topic conversations included gender violence, climate change, abortion decriminalization, racism, drug legalization, and COVID-19. The COVID-19 discussion was filmed during confinement as a virtual dinner conversation.
“Pan y Circo was born by trying to combine two of the things I enjoy doing most: eating and listening. The goal was to make a show about other people in every way—the other people who are guests on the show, other people who live realities different from mine, and other people who do not think like me. We listen to each other while sharing a meal, nothing more,” said Diego Lune in a statement. “The table, in my life, has turned out to be the ideal place to debate, to reflect and share my worries and aspirations with others.”
