Spencer Tunick in “Making Off,” Guanajuato International Film Festival 2011

In part, Spencer Tunick is famous for shooting 18,000 nudes in Mexico City’s Zocalo, one of the world’s largest city squares. What would he do on the more confined cobble-stoned streets of San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato?

Arturo Manrique’s “Making Off” is a short film documenting Tunick’s early morning photo shoots in the two colonial cities, the production crew’s brushes with bemused locals and their run-ins with the constabulary. Caught in the act, will the police agree that Tunick’s nudes are indeed art?

The short premiered at the 2011 Guanajato International Film Festival.
