Growing up in the Mission District of San Francisco, Che Rivera has always had to be tough to survive. He is a powerful man respected throughout the Mission barrio for his masculinity and his strength, as well as for his hobby building beautiful Lowrider cars. Che kicks his beloved son, Jesse, out of the house after discovering that he has been living a secret life. There's no one in the world that Che loves more than his son, but both father and son are about to discover that love isn't exactly unconditional.

Since 2014, the annual Film Series introduces audiences to the power of film as both an art form and an opportunity to learn about the diversity of themes and genres within the *Latino community.
Whether it is focused in Realism, Classicism, or Formalism – from documentary to fiction to the avant-garde – films offer valuable points-of-view and, in the tech-driven 21st century, greater accessibility to those points-of-view. The Latino/Latina Film Series offers viewers an opportunity to understand, evaluate, and see their own story in the films of others.
Enjoy . . . disfruta!
