I just saw this beautiful film last night, “Mosquita y Mari,” at Kabuki Theater in San Francisco for the San Francisco Int’l Film Festival. I was wowed by the pure talent of the actors and seeing a genuine story of queer desire from and about people of color. This is what we’ve been needing to combat the hegemonic white coming-out narrative. It’s amazing both as a story and as a work of art.
I’m sure I’ll have more thoughts later but right now I want to share the trailer with you.
