Portland Latino Gay Pride's "Film Night" Presents: THE CORNER SONG Panel with Director Marco Castro-Bojorquez and families featured in the film to follow screening.
From the director of "Three Drops of Water" comes a new documentary, "The Song of the Hummingbird." Much like the seldom-heard song of the hummingbird, the voices of Latin fathers are rarely heard in addressing LGBTQ issues. This film aims to amplify their voices.
"The 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 "Three Drops of Water" 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.
