The Spanish translation of the documentary “Meet the Mormons,” or “Conozca a los Mormones,” will hit 50 theaters in Mexico beginning Feb. 27. The film’s director, Blair Treu, singer David Archuleta and native Spanish-speaker Carolina Muñoz Marin, “the fighter” featured in the movie, recently visited Mexico to promote the film.

Archuleta documented the group’s trip to Mexico on his personal Instagram account, snapping photos of tacos and a trip to Teotihuacán, an archeological site. While in Mexico, Archuleta also spoke to a group of youths.

“We had an incredible time in Mexico,” Archuleta wrote on Instagram. “I hope we go back soon because the people are so great, and I made friends very quickly.”

After debuting in 317 theaters around the United States in October 2014, “Meet the Mormons,” a feature-length documentary produced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, made $3,952,235 in its first week. In Mexico, the film will be shown in Cinemex theaters.
