Traditional Latino culture leaves little room for accepting change or different lifestyles. This has caused a lot of conflicts between children and their parents. Especially when they have revealed to their mothers and fathers that they are anything other than “straight”. Some are lucky enough to have parents be able to change and accept them for who they are. While others are even kicked out of their houses or shunned for who they are. It is unfortunate that it would come to that as it’s a waste of time that you could spend with your loved one.
This is a theme of the Bolivian film, Tu Me Manques from Rodrigo Bellott. LRM Online has obtained an exclusive trailer for the film that you can check out below!
Below is the synopsis for Dark Star Pictures’ Tu Me Manques
Following the death of his son, Jorge travels from conservative Bolivia to NYC to confront Sebastian – his son’s boyfriend. While Jorge struggles to accept the life of his son, Sebastian channels his grief into a bold play honoring his lost love. Latino favorites Rossy de Palma and Dominc Colón star in Tu Me Manques, in select theaters April 22 (including Film Out in San Diego) and on DVD and Digital May 4 from Dark Star Pictures.
It’s a situation like we had mentioned in the beginning, that many Latino families unfortunately are faced with. Not saying that other cultures don’t have similar situations, but this is the lens that this film is being seen through. It must be crushing to learn how great your son/daughter was after they are tragically taken away. All because you couldn’t accept the lifestyle that made them happy.
