Q&A with Rodrigo Plá
Free sangria and popcorn will be provided to all ticket-holders before the screening.
The fifth collaboration between the Uruguayan-Mexican creative duo of Rodrigo Plá and Laura Santullo (A Monster with a Thousand Heads), based on a novel by Santullo, tells the story of Elena, a working-class single mom and her nine-year-old son, Tom, who has been diagnosed with ADHD. Elena risks losing custody when she refuses to continue medicating Tom after an accident alerts her of his treatment’s side effects. Set in the border city of El Paso, Texas, this gripping and intimate drama is anchored by potent performances from Julia Chávez and Israel Rodriguez Bertorelli.
