HUMMINGBIRDS

In the Texan border town of Laredo, best friends and directors Silvia Del Carmen Castaños and Estefanía "Beba" Contreras while away the long summer nights together at the bar, in a drive-thru, on friends' couches or at protests for legal abortion and against border control violence. Through candid conversations captured by a fly-on-the-wall camera, these gifted artists share their innermost thoughts as they confront the challenges in their day-to-day lives head-on. The resulting documentary, made in collaboration with a collective of queer, non-binary and women filmmakers, is an empathetic portrait of late-stage adolescence and immigration in an increasingly divided America. Winner, Grand Prix, 2023 Berlinale Generation 14plus. Official Selection, 2023 True/False Film Festival. DIR Silvia Del Carmen Castaños, Estefanía "Beba" Contreras; DIR/PROD Miguel Drake-McLaughlin, Diane Ng, Ana Rodriguez-Falcó, Jillian Schlesinger; PROD Leslie Benavides, Rivkah Beth Medow.
