Description

Using a cast of Mexican-Americans with no previous acting experience, Aaron Douglas Johnston creates a film of raw emotion and honesty. Set in a small town in Iowa, the Garcia family comes to grips with life’s changing routines and expectations. Older brother Silas dreams of leaving for the city, while the rest of the family focuses on planning his bratty sister’s upcoming quinceañera. Not only a testament to the creativity and ingenuity of independent filmmaking, My Sister’s Quinceañera is a lovely portrait of a family grappling with the inevitability of transition.
