Portland Latino Gay Pride's "Noche de Pelicula" Presents:
EL CANTO DEL COLIBRI
Panel with Director Marco Castro-Bojorquez and families featured in the film to follow screening.
From the director of “Tres Gotas de Agua” comes a new documentary, “El Canto del Colibrí.” Much like the seldom-heard song of the hummingbird, the voices of Latino fathers are rarely heard in addressing LGBTQ issues. This film aims to amplify their voices.
“El Canto del Colibrí,” is a story of Latino fathers dealing with issues of immigration, faith, marriage equality, machismo, culture, and the process of their LGBTQ children coming out. Responding to requests from “Tres Gotas de Agua” audiences around the world, the filmmakers are taking this journey by inviting Latino men to speak frankly about delicate and deeply personal topics. This film will address political issues about LGBTQ families, social oppression, shared responsibility and acceptance of LGBTQ people as members of Latino families.
The film will be in Spanish with English subtitles.
