CLFF 39 Closing Night: Mamacruz

AMC River East 21   322 E Illinois Street, Chicago, IL

Cruz (Kiti Manver, "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown") is a religiously devout woman who seeks affection from her dull husband. Both are taking care of their precocious granddaughter Viki after her mother leaves for Vienna in pursuit of a career as a professional dancer. One night, Cruz accidentally clicks on a porn website. Mortified at first, she finds herself rediscovering her own desires and seeks the help of a local women’s sex therapy group. Patricia Ortega’s second feature (her first, "Yo imposible", was an Official Selection of the 35th Chicago Latino Film Festival) is a sensitive and nuanced portrait of sexual reawakening.
