SANTA ANA, Calif. — A Mexican film by Raúl Fuentes, featuring an LGBT theme, will be shown this weekend in the OC.
“Todo El Mundo Tiene A Alguien Menos Yo (Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me)” will be screened at 7 pm Saturday, Aug. 10 at the Yost Theater, 307 N. Spurgeon St. in Santa Ana, CA 92701. A question-and-answer session with the director will follow the screening. Tickets at $10.
A reception for the director will precede the event at 6 pm at the theater. Tickets for the reception and screening are $15, and limited to the first 100 reservations.
“Todo El Mundo” tells the love story between two very different women: Alejandra, a 30-something book editor, overly critical and seemingly incapable of enjoying life and love, and Maria, a free-spirited private school teen. With complete disregard for rules and regulations, Maria drags Alejandra out of her shell and introduces her to a life based on passion and instinct. But can their relationship survive the pressures of their opposing personalities?
Through these characters, director Raúl Fuentes explores the growing pains of a relationship, the complexity of love, and the fear of opening up to another. With modern cosmopolitan Mexico City as the backdrop, his story unfolds in stunning black-and-white cinematography.
Fuentes’ multifaceted talent brings to life an engaging and unconventional love story, making him one of the most innovative and exciting up-and-coming Latin American directors.
