Happiness, revenge, love, and intimacy, in my opinion, are defining characteristics in the Latinx culture and they are some of the themes that reflect the short films chosen for this year's program. Expect to go through a wild ride with turns that'll take you to the edge of your seat. Você está pronto? Curated by Giuseppe Di Caprio and Matheus Cabral.
This event is proud to be co-presented by: The Theatre Offensive , LatinX Pride , Boston Latino International Film Festival , Men of Melanin Magic
