What started off as a one night showcase of experimental film at LA Film School in 2013, led to this year’s first Latina/o Queer Arts and Film Festival that was held from April 10-13 in Los Angeles. Filmmaker and founder Jonathan Menendez wants to use LQAFF as a platform for those voices we don’t hear in the mainstream. Naturally, the roster of talent included eclectic visual artists, fearless performers, and films old and new. A gallery opening kicked off the festival, followed by the opening night with transVISIBLE The Bamby Salcedo Story and an after-party with live music.
So get cute and check out the full schedule going down at The Village.
Director: Jules Nurrish
This short film, starring the budding actor Raúl Castillo (HBO’s Looking) tells the story of boxer Kid Vargas, and what begins to unravel once he kills a man in the ring. The trailer has Johnny Cash “Hurt” playing and it’s all very broody. Don’t mind!
I don't mind. Esta fuerte, mijo!

Most of these movies are hard to find, but you can watch Raúl Castillo pound flesh in Kiss Me on itunes.
