About Mosquita y Mari

Year Released:
Set in a predominately Mexican, immigrant neighborhood in Los Angeles, Mosquita y Mari tells the story of two 15-year-old Chicanas growing up. As a sheltered, only-child to her older, immigrant parents, Yolanda’s sole concern is securing her college-bound future. In contrast, street-wise Mari hustles to help her undocumented family stay above water. Though much different, they are soon brought together when Mari is threatened with expulsion after saving Yolanda from an incident at school. The two forge a friendship that soon proves more complex when a moment between them reveals a sexual undercurrent. (HD Cam presentation)
