From Vancouver Gigi Saul Guerrero’s film LA QUINCEAÑERA !!! Running time 70min.
Alejandra’s life is about to change forever on the night of her quinceañera, a coming of age ceremony held on a girl’s fifteenth birthday. In this daring revenge tale, a young girl will learn the limits of resilience and strength as she is thrust into the most extraordinary of situations over the course of 24 hours. The director has been praised for innovative work in the horror genre and this work reflects her recognizable style of Tex-Mex grit with a touch of grindhouse and gore.
Don’t miss this BC PREMIERE screening on Saturday, March 9, 9:30 pm. There will be a Q&A with Gigi after the screening as well!! Checkout the trailer below. We will also be giving away 2 TICKETS to the screening via our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram so be sure to like and follow so you know when that is happening!
