Nancy from Eastside Clover

This intimate portrait tells the story of Nancy Valverde and her journey of growing up poor, Chicana, a woman, and a lesbian in mid-20th century, East Los Angeles. Growing up her personal choices and even choice of clothes were criminalized—while today, at 83 years old, her defiance and resilience to maintain her identity as a Chicana butch lesbian has garnered her legendary status in the Los Angeles queer community.  

Los Angeles: May 26 at La Plaza. Conversation with Nancy Valverde and Director Gregorio Davila after the film.
