Movie Screening

On Monday, October 28 at the Region X Conference there will be a 5:45 pm Movie Screening by Fulbright awardee Lucia Florez "Mama". This is a private showing of a work in progress.

"Mamá" is a documentary film about the Fulbright grantee Lucía Florez, a queer Peruvian filmmaker, and her psychoanalyst mother. When presented with the opportunity to join her mother’s research trip about the new conceptions of motherhood in the Andean culture in Peru, Lucía decides to make a movie about the experience as an opportunity to explore their own mother-daughter relationship. Things start to get tense between Lucía and her mother when they start to explore the impact that the filmmaker´s sexual orientation had on both of them as they try to reach a mutual understanding and get some closure.
