His obsession with straightening his naturally curly hair for a school photoshoot raises alarm in his family"so does his way of looking to a handsome teen who works at a newsstand in the neighborhood. Growing up was never easy. More info at the Spanish Film Club website.

The screening will be introduced by Professor Ana Adams (MLLC/Spanish). After the film, all guests are invited to stay for a panel discussion. There'll be popcorn as well!
