MOSQUITA Y MARI

Set in a predominately Mexican, immigrant neighbourhood in Los Angeles, MOSQUITA Y MARI tells the story of two 15-year-old Chicanas growing up in H.P.—Huntington Park. When Yolanda Olveros (“Mosquita”) meets her new neighbour, Mari Rodriguez, all they see in each other are their differences. As a sheltered, only-child to her older, immigrant parents, Yolanda’s sole concern is securing her college-bound future. Street-wise Mari hustles to help her undocumented family stay above water. But despite Yolanda and Mari’s contrasting approach to survival, an incident at school brings them together and thrusts them into a unexpectedly complex and sensual friendship. Lost in their private world of unspoken affection, lingering gazes, and heart-felt confessions of uncertain futures, Yolanda’s grades begin to slip while Mari’s focus drifts away from her duties at a new job.

Friday Night Movie: Concussion

Friday 11 January | 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.  
Friday Night Movie: Concussion 
at James Bay New Horizons, 234 Menzies St.

Concussion (2013), written and directed by Stacie Passon, takes a well-worn storyline and makes something unique and fresh out of it.

Concussion“It was a treat watching the film because I actually didn’t know what would happen next. How is that possible with such familiar material? The script is excellent, with some pretty sharp edges, but I credit mostly Robin Weigert, whose portrayal of Abby is one of the best performances of the year.”  – Sheila O’Malley
