José

Friday, Apr 19, 2019 at 9:00 PM - English

José lives with his single mom in cramped quarters in Guatemala, a tough life in one of the world's most dangerous, religious, and impoverished countries. His mother sells sandwiches, and he delivers food at the drive-by diner. Resigned and aloof, the one bright spot in his life is the face of his mobile phone – it literally lights up his evenings and helps him find men to hook up with in pay-by-the-hour hotels. That is, until construction worker Luis enters his life and José is thrust into a dimension of passion, pain and self-reflection previously unimaginable.

Outshine is everything you want in a film festival... inviting, glowing, and eclipsing all others before it. Our mission is to inspire, entertain, and educate; encouraging a sense of community through international and culturally diverse film, video, and other media that offer historical and contemporary perspectives on the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender experience.

OUTrageous. OUTspoken. And OUTstanding in what we deliver. Join us in 2019 for our 21st Annual Miami Edition, April 18-28 and 11th Annual Fort Lauderdale Edition, October 10-20.
