The third feature film by acclaimed radio DJ Olallo Rubio is a irreverent rockumentary about the four-time Latin Grammy Award-winning Mexican alternative band Molotov. Formed in 1995, Molotov rapidly became a favorite among Mexican fans for its risqué, playful, and politically-inspired lyrics. Taking the band's provocative and controversial trademark lyrics as a point of departure, Gimme the Power narrates the history of the popular band while exploring the convoluted political and social contexts of contemporary Mexico.
