Bruising for Besos

When: Sat., Feb. 25, 8 p.m. 2017

Hailing from SA’s Southside and now living on the West Coast, accomplished queer artist Adelina Anthony wrote, starred in and directed this lesbian story about family, religion, love and, ultimately, friendship as a means of survival. The terrific, mostly QPOC cast members (as genuine as Anthony’s own lethally intense eyes) carry a film that’s equal parts steamy, violent and tender.
