London Mexfest 2013: Actor Diego Luna Chats Mexican Culture (INTERVIEW)

Mexico appears to have brought its hot and sunny weather to the capital, as London Mexfest kicks off this week, celebrating the country's rich array of cultural contributions.

Running for four days, this year's event gives the capital a dose of Mexico's film, architecture, music and contemporary art, in a creative space of exhibitions, outdoor cinema, free live music and discussion panels.

Highlights include music from Grupo Mono Blanco & Gil Cerezo at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Mexican themed outdoor film screenings at Canary Wharf courtesy of Mexican street food restaurant Wahaca, as well as a series of talks on architecture from Victor Legorreta, Miquel Adria and Michel Rojkind at The Royal Academy of Arts.

Mexican actor Diego Luna will be attending London Mexfest, known for his acting and directing work in his native country, along with roles in American films, including The Terminal, Milk and Frida.
