Bad Hair/ Pelo Malo  Dir. Mariana Rondón, Venezuela, 2013
Saturday, June 21, 1:30 PM Roxie Theater – Tickets:  http://bit.ly/BadHairFrameline

BadHair_FramelineYoung Junior’s obsessive quest for a luxuriant head of silky, straight hair threatens to compromise the already desperately pinched existence he shares with his unsympathetic mother and infant brother in Caracas. This powerful, disquieting story of longing and unrelenting hardship is sweetly balanced with discerning compassion and moments of simple tenderness.

DEL OTRO LADO DEL VERANO / The Other Side of Summer

Dir. Antonia San Juan, Spain , 2012 , 100 min.
Tana’s family put the “D” in dysfunctional. Never is this more clear than when her unemployed, alcoholic Dad kicks the bucket. The ties (licit and illicit) between his widow, her sisters, his sister, and various cousins are more tangled than a rat’s nest, and Salvador’s death unleashes a merry-go-round of backstabbing gossip and melodrama. How do you maintain your sanity in a family where your grandmother crank calls your mom? Victoria Theater June 25 9:30 PM Buy Tickets/See Trailer
