Tales of Babylon was really personal to me, because despite being a story about gangsters , it is a story about London, with he city as the protagonist and everything the makes it special at it’s core, the diversity, the special type of culture we have and the variety of characters that makes London such an exciting city. Tales of Babylon, is also a film about the family, about finding your own family and about redemption, as the protagonists go through the story trying to make amends for their past mistakes. I can’t wait for everyone to get their eyes onto Tales of Babylon because I’m sure they won’t be able to take them off the screen.”

Elena Conte, CEO Grouch Arts said “Tales of Babylon is now finished and I couldn’t be more excited for the whole team who put so much into it, and especially Pelayo who wrote and directed the film with a lot of heart and personality, and for someone as young as him to already be pushing like this is something I haven’t seen in a long time, I’m sure the audience will love the film.”
