This film addresses the need to bring awareness of LGBTQ children and youth within Latino American communities. It deals with homophobia from a yet unavailable perspective in our communities: that of a young, Latina girl. Films addressing homophobia often center teenagers or adults as protagonist, but the experiences of LGBTQ children remain invisible. The film provides young girls with artistic options in which to see themselves reflected. By focusing the film on precocious and precious children, we hope it provides a space for us as Latino Americans to teach tolerance and acceptance of LGBTQ children and adults. Ultimately, it is a story of dreams, hopes and friendship.
This film deals with themes of identity, coming out, anti-bullying, activism and friendship. What makes this film very special is that all of the characters are Chicana females. "I am committed to casting all Xicana actors and having as many women in leadership and creative roles behind the scenes." - Karla Legaspy

Kiersey Clemmons (Guest)
Clemons is best known for her role as Bianca on the TV series, Transparent. She also plays Sophia in the MTV original series, Eye Candy. In the new film DOPE, she does an outstanding job, as she stars as a lesbian tomboy.
A critical hit and audience favorite out of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and an official selection of the 2015 Cannes International Film Festival Directors’ Fortnight, in DOPE, Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is carefully surviving life in a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles while juggling college applications, academic interviews, and the SAT. A chance invitation to an underground party leads him into an adventure that could allow him to go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself. DOPE opens nationwide June 19. 2015.
