Bad Hair (Pelo Malo) (Venezuela/Peru/Argentina/Gernmany)
Directed by Mariana Rondón; 2013, 93 mins.

Prescreening and events begin at 7:00 p.m. Movie begins at sundown (around 8:30 p.m.)

A touching and humorous coming-of-gender story, Bad Hair chronicles the life of nine-year-old Junior, living in a bustling Caracas tenement with his widowed mother. Junior fears he has pelo malo – bad hair – and for his school photo, he wants to iron his stubbornly curly mane to resemble his pop star idols. His mother has serious misgivings; she suspects her son is gay. Rondón grounds her film in the cultural realities of working-class Venezuela – and, by dint of two remarkable performances, finds warmth and humor between mother and son, even as the uncertainties of pre-adolescence threaten to pull them apart.

Programmed by Film Forum.

Join us for a film screening of Love Express, featured by the Queens World Film Festival and director by Patrick Chen.

The film is set on the 7 train line that operates from Manhattan to Queens, New York. It transports a mix class of commuters, predominantly Hispanics and Asians, to their station. Even though these commuters are different by their ethnicity and neighborhood; they all share the 7 line as a community.

As his reason behind the film, Patrick Chen states:

“As a subway rider, I have witnessed love, hate, sadness and happiness in these MTA trains. It has become an unphysical form of connection with these strangers that bind us together as New Yorkers. I wanted to focus Love Express on the perspectives of young Chinese-Americans and their lifestyle. It was important for me as a writer to capture a respectable persona of Asian Americans that delivers a positive and honest perspective of their characters in an everyday scenario that captures the “slice of life” moment.”
