Storyline

Inspired by a meeting with Robert Rodriguez (El Mariachi, From Dusk Till Dawn), German film maker Mike Siegel started a no-budget film project, with Rodriguez $7000 sensation El Mariachi in mind. Shot on Super 16 for $12,000, Siegel completed his gangster road movie Pendechos! in 1997. Unhappy with the dialog track he shelved it and started his new film on director Sam Peckinpah. Starring James Coburn, Ernest Borgnine and Kris Kristofferson, Passion & Poetry - The Ballad Of Sam Peckinpah became an international success. Siegel went on to co-produce international Peckinpah home video releases and in 2015 he started a crowdfunding project to give Pendechos! a second life. The 16mm footage was scanned in 2K, re-edited and equipped with a new score and sound effects. NO RETAKES! NO SURRENDER! tells the often hilarious story of this unusual feature film project.
