THE SUNDANCE KID

Queering Sundance: What’s Gay At This Year’s Sundance Film Festival?

Mosquita Y Mari

Aurora Guerrero’s coming of age story focuses on the complexities of a budding friendship between high-school girls in L.A.’s Huntington Park. Yolanda is the perfect daughter and student, while Mari,  who’s just moved to town with her illegal-immigrant family, naturally feels like an outsider. After a rocky start on the first day of school, the girls form a deep connection—one that confuses them at times.
