logoFILM SCREENING in Margo Albert Theatre: “La Guapa”
La Guapa is a respected and loved salon owner in the neighborhood who is forced to be a murder for hire by her ex-husband, reputed drug dealer Cesar Figueroa. Having had an affair with Cesar’s right hand man, La Guapa’s penance is to take out every connection to Cesar’s drug empire. All the while Cesar keeps La Guapa at a distance away from their daughter. The stakes are raised when Detective Pensiero starts to put the pieces together. which will eventually lead him to La Guapa. Award-winning filmmaker Kenneth Castillo brings another emotional tale set in the urban Latino world where loyalties are challenged and everything and everyone are connected. ” It’s not a small world, just a small neighborhood.”
