GAY LATINO LA: COMING OF AGE
Dir: Jonathan Menendez, 2012, 78 min

FRIDAY | March 14 | 9:30pm | Egyptian Theatre (Spielberg)

In Los Angeles, a city where dreams are born (and sometimes achieved), three young men come of age as gay Latinos. From different backgrounds, each struggles with family issues, cultural expectations and religious beliefs. Brian, a Salvadoran educated at Berkeley, covets a better world for him and others, but lacks the self-confidence to take action. Alex, born in Mexico, desires a better life and an education, but his dreams are compromised by being undocumented. Carlos, a Chicano homeboy, is caught in a self-destructive lifestyle that numbs the loneliness and pain of feeling unable to come out to his family. Director Jonathan Menendez takes us on a gripping journey as the three young men deal with the realities of being gay and Latino in L.A. Despite their internal conflicts with religion, dealing with family abandonment in a culture of hyper-masculinity, they find self-acceptance and care as they come of age in the City of Angels.
