The(ir) Blurb...

Three Generations of a Cuban family reflect on their culture loss and relationships with each other. Kevin Rios’ short documentary is about his experience growing up in a Cuban family, wrestling with his sexual identity, and moving to New York City. Shot in moody-romantic black and white and boasting old footage from his family’s personal archives, Rios has become a filmmaker to watch, one whose story is relatable to many LGBTs hungering for inner-understanding, but also fiercely original and illuminating.
