Filmmaker Bruno Santamaría crafts an exquisite, ephemeral profile of a Mexican teenager on the cusp of adulthood. In the humble coastal village of El Roblito, Ñoño’s family and community live a seemingly idyllic existence. Ñoño spends time staging dance productions with local kids, but, when able to find time alone, travels to a secret place to dress as a woman. When violence disrupts El Roblito, Ñoño must decide if he will follow his dreams or remain with his conservative, loving family. This achingly beautiful film showcases the quiet and powerful acts of bravery in everyday life.
Included with the screening ticket is an exclusive pre-recorded filmmaker Q&A, immediately following the film.
