Posted in , , ,

Writer: José Rivera; Director: Marya Mazor; Producers: Camillia Sanes, Stephanie Bell.

Or the result of a one-night stand, as the girl’s mother claims? This visually arresting and poetic rumination on truth, written by Academy-award nominee José Rivera, asks what it means to hold fast to a belief, and what it takes to let it go.
