New York's LGBT fest has a nice lineup of Latino films. Here's just a couple:
Plaza de la Soledad, Mexico
Photographer-turned-filmmaker Maya Goded invites us into the bedrooms of aging female sex workers in La Merced, Mexico with this beautifully shot ode to female strength and perseverance. A portrait of women ranging from 50-80 years old who still work the streets of the Plaza with vigor and zest.
Pepa San Martín’s debut feature is an endearing family drama about two young sisters being raised by lesbian parents that their biological father, and the law, want to tear them away from. Achingly tender and clear-eyed, RARA is told from the point of view of Sara, a 13-year-old who is beginning to see her worldview and the comfort of her familial unit dissolve as she grows older.
New York: Oct. 20 - 25. Full lineup and details here.
