In person Q&A with director Rodrigo Dorfman, hosted by Prof. Samanta Ordóñez (Spanish)

​​Life for a Latinx immigrant family in the New South (in North Carolina) can be challenging and sometimes terrifying, but thankfully, there’s always a fiesta to take you through the night. ¡FIESTA! Quinceañera , is a feature documentary, based on the ITVS digital series, that weaves the lives of three Latina girls and a seasoned drag artist as they celebrate their quinceañera, a complex and colorful rite of passage. The creative spirit of Latinx communities and their struggle to retain their roots and traditions shine through this multicultural coming of age story.
