Coming of Age

Directed by:


Monday, November 12, 2012, 7pm - 9pm

Free Admission, seats are first come first serve.    

"Gay Latino Los Angeles: Coming of Age" is a docu-drama journey into the lives of three young men as they search for identity and grapple with issues of family, hypermasculinity, religion, culture, and desire in L.A. An undocumented immigrant hipster from Mexico, a Salvadoran activist and Berkeley graduate, and a Mexican American from South Central Los Angeles escaping gang life round out the cast. The film is interlaced and narrated with the poetry of Yosimar Reyes and the ceremonial choreography of an Aztec dancer further conveying the independent path toward self-discovery and self-acceptance. 

 Filmmaker and Producer, Jonathan Menendez, will be in attendance taking questions and comments following the screening.
