This Lovely Shitty Life / 19th Berlin & Beyond
THIS LOVELY SHITTY LIFE
(DIESES SCHÖNE SCHEISSLEBEN)
(QUE CARAMBA ES LA VIDA)


Sat., Jan. 31, 2015  1:00 pm
Castro Theatre, San Francisco

San Francisco Premiere
In Person: Doris Dörrie

86 mins. Documentary Feature Film. Germany, Mexico (2014). In Spanish with English subtitles.

Official Selection, 2014 South by Southwest (SXSW).

Mariachi is an essential part of Mexican culture. It's more than just music; it's a lifestyle that views the world from a macho perspective. The business is tough and women are seldom appreciated in this strictly male domain. Nevertheless, a handful of female musicians choose to be Mariachi. The first women mariachi band that formed in 1958 is still performing. And then there's a band of young female musicians who struggle with family issues and their vocation. Against the backdrop of the folky 'Día de los Muertes' celebrations, director Doris Dörrie accompanies them to their performances on the streets of Mexico and throughout their daily lives, singing about death, love and poverty. Munich International Film Festival
