SAN FRANCISCO SCREENING–MIJA

April 28 @ 5:30 pm7:30 pm

$16 – $18

65TH SFFILM FESTIVAL: MIJA–This intimate coming-of-age story follows young Mexican American Doris Muñoz who works as a music manager for artist Cuco, her biggest client. When the two part ways, the ambitious Muñoz seeks fresh talent and discovers singer-songwriter Jacks Haupt. This new beginning reconnects her with her love for music, but Muñoz is often torn between her pursuit of a career as an artist and her obligations in caring for her undocumented immigrant family. Directed by first-time Mexican American filmmaker Isabel Castro, Mija pairs dreamy cinematography with a whimsical soundtrack of Latinx alternative music as it tells a touching story about a first-generation daughter’s burdens and shines a light on issues surrounding immigration. Director Isabel Castro, composer Helado Negro, and subjects Doris Muñoz and Jacks Haupt are expected to attend. MIJA Thursday, Apr 28 at 5:30 pm Victoria Theatre 2961 16th Street, San Francisco Click here for tickets and more information. This project is supported by a California Documentary Project grant.
