Gerardo Oñate, Born in CDMX, on July 18, 1986, grew up in the city of Morelia. After working for 10 years in the digital marketing field and was an activist for human rights, Gerardo decided to venture into the media, working with TV and Radio.
After his appearance and success in some independent short films in Michoacán, he returned to CDMX to start his professional career as an actor. At the age of 30, he prepared himself at Casa Spanda and Alexander Techworks, as well as various workshops at Casazul.
Gerardo has participated in several short films such as: “Boulangerie de Barrio and Destino Cero” by Roberto Chávez, “Noche De Viernes” by Ulises Fuerte, “Cucarachas” by Manfred López Grem, and “Donde Nunca Morirás” by Héctor Estrada.
In addition to starring in "Tekenchu" directed by Carlos Matienzo, Gerardo served as co-writer and co-producer of the project, which has been selected in more than 80 festivals on 4 continents and continues to reap laurels after being filmed in 2020.
In 2022 he appears as the protagonist of two film projects: film “Poderosa Victoria”, along with Damián Alcázar, which also has a first-rate cast made up of Roberto Sosa, Edgar Vivar, Luis Felipe Tovar, Said Sandoval, Alberto Trujillo and Joaquín Cosío, among others. The film, “La Esperanza” by director Raúl Ramón and producer Fabiola Velázquez narrates how La Esperanza, a town in northern Mexico in 1936, had its only railway decommissioned, so the remaining residents had to join forces to build a train with their own hands and thus prevent the town from falling into oblivion.
In it, Gerardo plays Durán, a train driver, who will have to decide between looking for a future on the other side of the river or staying and facing not only this impossible task, but also the ghosts of his past.
“Poderosa Victoria” had its premiere during this year at the 36th edition of Guadalajara’s International Film Festival.
In the second instance, Gerardo acts alongside Mónica Arce and Elsi Jiménez in the independent drama: “La Laguna Rosa,” the Opera Prima by Juan Arce and Francisco Gallo from Gitana Films in CDMX, filmed between 2018 and 2019, La Laguna Rosa will see its premiere internationally at the San Antonio Film Festival in August 2022, as well as its first national screenings during the 2nd semester of the same year.
La Laguna Rosa tells the story of Arturo and Mariana, two half-siblings who are reunited after years in the City of Merida, Yucatán. The reunion took place because of a ballet recital Mariana, a dancer with Down Syndrome, had been invited. During his stay on the Peninsula, Arturo will rediscover what he lost in his sister, as well as in himself.
The last period short film in which he appears, “Los Hijos de Dios” by Sebastián Torres Greene, whose production took place over 8 days in the jungle of Veracruz, is about to premiere at this year's FICM and thus begin its national and international festivals debuts.
Along with his acting career, Gerardo is also a founding member of the group of independent filmmakers "Wuka", through which, in alliance with various production companies, he develops short films, feature films and series as a producer, director and screenwriter.
