Film: Real Women Have Curves

June 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$5 – $10

Pre-screening conversation with director Patricia Cardoso.

Ana García (America Ferrera), on the brink of graduating high school, is bright but has dismissed plans for higher education as she grapples with familial obligations. When Ana takes a job working for her sister Estela (Ingrid Oliu) at the family sewing factory, she gains new perspectives on life from the women she works with, who help her embrace self-acceptance and determine her future path. Based on the play by Josefina López—who co-wrote the screenplay with George LaVoo—the semi-biographical dramedy takes place in the historically Chicano East LA neighborhood of Boyle Heights.

DIRECTED BY: Patricia Cardoso. WRITTEN BY: George LaVoo, Josefina López. WITH: America Ferrera, Lupe Ontiveros, Ingrid Oliu, George Lopez. 2002. 90 min. USA. Color. English, Spanish. Rated PG-13. DCP. Courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.
