Hummingbirds Silvia Del Carmen Castaños, Estefanía "Beba" Contreras

Two best friends bask in the long summer days in Laredo, Texas. Ahead of them, the Rio Grande marks the border between Mexico and the US. They reminisce vaguely about the day they crossed it, leaving their native country behind. Silvia and Estefania are both the protagonists and the directors of this collaborative, poetic coming-of-age tale. Creativity and rebellion allow them temporary respite from their anxiety around the immigration process and their doubts about a future in a conservative America. A cinematic work with pop overtones, Hummingbirds reminds us that happiness is often found in the simple things and that resistance, for many, is a way of life. (MAS)
