MOSQUITA Y MARI
MOSQUITA Y MARI

Saturday, January 26 @ 5pm
Monday, January 28 @ 9:30pm

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 Olveros ("Mosquita") meets her new neighbor, Mari Rodriguez, 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. But despite Yolanda and Mari's contrasting approach to survival, Yolanda and Mari are soon brought together when Mari is threatened with expulsion after saving Yolanda from an incident at school involving Yolanda's boy-crazed friends. Determined to call it even, Yolanda convinces Mari to let her tutor her after school to prove to the administrators that she's more than a delinquent. 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.
