The Consulate General of Mexico in Los Angeles is honored to invite you to become part of our new cinematographic project “Ciclo de Cine Consular” (Consular Movie Club), where we aim to promote international cinema to our local communities. This program is an opportunity to strengthen ties between our communities and to build communication bridges among diverse nations, as well as to manifest each unique expression of art through cinema.
In this occasion we have the honor to be hosting Ecuador. Join us in this delightful evening where we will be able to sample their films and their traditional food.
Alba, 11 years old, passes her days in silence. She loves little animals. She has learned to cope with her mother's illness, helping her to use the bathroom. Alba plays silently so that her mother can rest during the day. One night Alba's mother gets worse, and has to be taken to the hospital. With no one else to take care of her, Alba is sent to live with her father, who she hasn't seen since she was three years old. Living with her father is almost unbearable. Embarrassment, her first kiss, visits to mother in the hospital, Edgar's tender efforts to get close to her, and bullying at school; these are some of the experiences that pave Alba's journey to puberty and to self-acceptance.
