The work has been created by Canana, the arthouse Mexican production company founded by Garcia Bernal and his friends Diego Luna and Pablo Cruz. It work explores themes of trust, forgiveness and acceptance and will premiere on a Chivas/Canana branded Facebook page.

The first film, directed by Luna, is out later this month and the second concluding part, directed by Bernal, will be released in February.

James Slack, Chivas Regal global brand director, said: "We wanted to work with a company that understood friendship in the same way that we do.

"We were founded by two ambitious brothers and their values of generosity, brotherhood and friendship have remained at the heart of Chivas."
