Cultures & Communities Festival

An exciting, fresh, and timely look at coming-of-age in a small Texas town. Co-directors Silvia Del Carmen Castaños and Estefanía "Beba" Contreras document their friendship through a lazy summer before college. These Gen-Z women have already dealt with issues like immigration and racism and, in the wake of recent Supreme Court rulings, must now contend with a more challenging future. But in the end, this film celebrates friendship, joy, youthful energy, and hope.
