Filmmaker Bruno Santamaría crafts an exquisite, ephemeral profile of a Mexican teenager on the cusp of adulthood.

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.
