Mosquita Y Mari

Film tells the story of two 15-year-old Chicanas growing up in H.P. —Huntington Park

Screening + Conversation 
Special Guest: Director Aurora Guerrero

Set in a predominately Mexican immigrant neighborhood in Los Angeles, Mosquita Y Mari tells the story of two 15-year-old Chicanas growing up in H.P. —Huntington Park.

When Yolanda (Mosquita) meets her new neighbor, Mari, all they see in each other are their differences. As a sheltered, only child to her older immigrant parents, Yolanda’s sole concern is securing her college-bound future.

Street-wise, Mari hustles to help her undocumented family stay above water. Mari and Yolanda forge a friendship that soon proves more complex and sensual than anticipated. Pushed to the edge, Yolanda and Mari are faced with taking hold of their own lives.

In English and Spanish with English subtitles
Director: Aurora Guerrero (US 2012) 85 min


June is Pride Month, a celebration of LGBTQIA+ people and culture – a time to reflect on the great strides we’ve made as a community and to take inventory of the challenges we continue to face. As varied and vibrant as the community is, so are their stories put to film. CAFILM is proud to present its first-ever Pride series, showcasing the best LGBQTIA+ films that made history, not only because they were awarded or internationally recognized, but because of their importance in elevating new perspectives and voices.

This event seeks to promote awareness and understanding of LGBTQIA+ issues and create a safe and supportive environment for the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies to come together and celebrate their identities. It is a positive step towards creating a more inclusive and welcoming community for all.
