Documentary filmmaking with a social focus.


Relampago Films is an artistic collaboration between filmmakers  Deni Alarcon, Jesse Such and Francisco Alarcon. We currently work on documentaries with a social focus in order to provide a better understanding of the issues that are relevant to our reality today.

Our films have been screened at Cal State Los Angeles, University of California San Diego, Columbia University, University of California Los Angeles, New Mexico State University, Pratt Institute, Valencia College, Golden West College. They have also been watched by hundreds of students through or educational partner streaming services. Furthermore, they have served as an point of discussion for non/profits such as the National immigration Justice Alliance screening organised by the city of Chicago.

For more information about any of our documentaries and upcoming projects please send us an e-mail at or fill out the contact form.
