Li Cheng. Guatemala / USA. 2018. 85 min. Spanish and Mayan with English subtitles.

Nineteen-year-old José lives with his devout mother in one of Guatemala City's roughest neighborhoods. They earn a living selling sandwiches and delivering food. While his mother devotes her free time to church, José arranges random sexual encounters with strangers through an app. Through Luis, a migrant from the Caribbean, José will discover a world far more tender that the violently homophobic one he lives in. Winner of the Queer Lion Award at last year's Venice Film Festival.

Shown with short film: Kbela, directed by Yasmin Thaiiná.

Free and open to the public.
