JOSÉ

Directed by Li Cheng

Cast: Ana Cecilia Mota, Manolo Herrera, Enrique Salanic

Winner of the Venice Queer Lion, this intimate neorealist story follows José, a 19-year-old who finds escape from his working-class existence in Guatemala City through hookup apps and casual meetups. He discovers meaning in his encounters with Luis, a migrant construction worker who dreams of a better life for them together. But can this passionate new relationship — and the promise of change — rival José’s bond with his doting, religious mother?
