Super Amigos y Luchando

Once again the SF International Latino Film Festival is coming up and I want to see movies movies movies! I don't have a free pass this time but here are two movies I don't want to miss:

"Super Amigos"
Five real-life comic-book superheroes champion the causes of Mexico's oppressed in Director Arturo Perez Torres'
fun documentary, Super Amigos.
With their masked wrestling costumes, they take on the causes of tenants' rights, prevention of cruelty to animals, gay rights, and environmentalism. This heart-warming documentary shows that ordinary people can muster super human powers for change.
Super Amigos will screen at multiple Bay Area locations.

Luchando, a gritty documentary by American Director Noelle Stout, takes us behind the scenes of the gay underground in Havana. Through cinema verité footage and candid interviews, it documents the physical, psychological and emotional journeys of four queer hustlers. The camera captures their most intimate moments while revealing the fight for survival in Cuba's gay underground.
Luchando will screen at the Mission Cultural Center on November 17 at 5:30pm.
