Film Series: Mosquita y Mari

2012. USA. Dir: Aurora Guerrero. With Fenessa Pineda. 85 min.

 

This warm, contemporary indie flick charts the budding friendship – and perhaps even “more-than-a-friend”-ship – between two Chicana teens in Huntington Park. With the tender awkwardness of youth the girls struggle with the expectations of their immigrant families and their own dawning independence and self-awareness.
