In the opening of every feature film, you’ll see the logo of an obscure production team, which you probably won’t see in any other movie. More often than not, they are the hardest workers. Los Pimientos is no exception. We are a small, spicy, brave production team that stopped for nothing and nobody in the making of SCRATCH
