Casi Divas (Almost Divas)
Part of the Redwood City International Latino Film Festival!
A shy indigenous girl from Oaxaca, a formerly chubby rich girl, a troubled factory worker from Ciudad Juarez, where women disappear and a flamboyant hairstylist from a poor section of Mexico City coincide in one thing: the search for fame and success.
They participate along with thousand of girls in a talent search to cast the lead for the movieÂÂÂMaria Enamorada that a successful producer of a popular soap opera wants to make. But the soap opera's extravagant diva expects to get the part for herselfÂÂÂ whatever it takes. He will have to fight against threats, promises, and pressure until he finds the jewel that will become the new star of Mexico.
An intelligent comedy that touches on racism, gender identity, body image and the sex industry while it takes us on the road to the glamorous world of the Almost Divas.
In Spanish with English subtitles.
