A sad, sepia-toned love story set in Mexico, with a distinctive scratchy, operatic style. It's a moving account of two Latino lovers and the relationship difficulties caused by machismo and fixed roles.

The 2020 NCLAFF celebrates the festival’s 35th anniversary with an innovative format, a virtual synchronic model. We will start with NCLAFF Conversations | A mini Web Conference: Latin American and Caribbean Film in the Era of Neoliberalism (1985-2020) on October 9 and 10, 2020. We will follow with ten days (October 9 to 18), of screenings/streaming. The films were selected from the hundreds of films shown during the past 35 years of the NCLAFF. The NCLAFF is a great way for students to engage with Latin American history, cinema, and current topics!
