NATIONAL LOTTERY CINEMA DAY

Allison Anders will be on-site for a post-film Q&A.


Mousie (Seidy Lopez) and Sad Girl (Angel Aviles) are two Mexican-American gang members in Echo Park, LA, who have been best friends since childhood. Their loyalty to the gang and one another is put to the test when Sad Girl betrays Mousie, by sleeping with her boyfriend. Drugs, murder, and tragedy seek to further re-define the state of their friendship.


Allison Anders’s third feature continued her interest in America's southern borderlands and the Mexican-American experience, while moving into the heart of LA gangland culture. Featuring the likes of Salma Hayek and Danny Trejo in small roles, Anders otherwise used an assortment of non-actors from the Echo Park area. Critically-acclaimed at the time of its release, the film failed to find a wide audience, but with its focus upon the urban experience of young Mexican-American women it is ripe for rediscovery in these times of Trumpian chauvinism.
