New Argentine Cinema with Albertina Carri queer mini-film festival this Saturday!

“Join L.M.N.O.P. & Whammy! for a small retrospective of Albertina Carri’s shorts and her erotic feature Las Hijas del Fuego (The Daughters of Fire, 2018). Albertina Carri (b.1973) is a seminal figure of the New Argentine Cinema that burst into prominence in the 1990s. She is that loose movement’s punk voice and anti-establishment consciousness, a rebel artist whose formally bold and wildly diverse films are united by a steadfast intent to rigorously challenge the status quo.”

L.M.N.O.P., the Lesbian Movie Night Ongoing Project, brings you this fabulous night of cinematic gems for queer women and their fans!

Saturday, May 6: Three Films by Albertina Carri: feature film Las Hijas del Fuego (2018), film shorts: Pets (2012) and Barbie Can Also Be Sad (2002), at Whammy!

About Judy Ornelas Sisneros

I am a native Californian, born and raised in Bakersfield and eventually escaping to San Jose then San Francisco where I spent every free moment in punk and post-punk culture spaces before heading to LA permanently in 1989. I have also spent major time as an AIDS and queer street activist, which today along with my passion for punk/alternative music still informs my personal and social life. I love photography, film and playing punk/post-punk stuff on the bass. My LA Beat contributions are usually photos that give a glimpse into the vibrant art and music scene that makes Los Angeles such an amazing city to live in today.
