Con Tu Nombre

This impressive collection of queer Latin@ shorts brings together a strong blend of poder, fe y nuestra familia. Family photos entwine with sacred ritual and relationship remembrance, fly homeboys and crushed-out schoolgirls explore their deseos, a ranchero yearns of being una reina, and a precious regalo is shared with comunidad.

The Piece of Furniture in the living room serves as one family’s proud and sacred window to their menaje. In The Blessed, Papa has arranged for his hija to play the Virgin Mary in a procession as a means to heal her. The sumptuous short Casa explores the relationship of a female couple in this delicate recuerdo. Kicking it on The Bridge a young vato braves the consequences of coming-out in his tough Los Angeles barrio. Poetry is all over the streets of Brasilia and especially in the eyes of two schoolgirls in The Art of Walking Through The Streets. A Good Son is forced to decide whether he will pursue his dream or remain on his family farm to fulfill what is expected of him. At his tia's birthday party, a ten-year-old boy in an upscale Miami home takes advantage of a well-attended family gathering to make a very personal announcement in Mariquita.
