Program: Shorts Programs

This flavorful collection of queer Latin@ shorts brings together a passionate mix of alma, deseo y vida. Queen-sized femmes with chola roots, eager-to-please escorts, Selena-hating divas, fierce madres, sweet schoolboys finding their way, and local girls creating plenty of candela heat up this program about nuestra familia. ¡Buen provecho!

The Interview (La Entrevista) delivers a solid satirical performance piece born of identity, social justice and decolonization, Queer Xicano style. With fierce seduction, fat femmes of color discuss their desires, sexuality and empowerment in With Conviction, featuring author/activist Jewelle Gomez, among others. In Drives, Carlos is about to get married, but he’s never explored his “needs”—perhaps a handsome escort can help? The powerful Tres Gotas De Agua shares the experiences of three resilient Latina immigrant mothers who explore the multigenerational impact of their children’s coming out process. Leonardo is a blind school boy who develops a crush on a new student in his class in the tender Brazilian short I Don’t Want to Go Back Alone (Eu Não Quero Voltar Sozinho). Recipe for Love cooks up a feast for the senses when two women from disparate backgrounds embark upon a journey of self-discovery, passion and food. — DESIREE BUFORD
