Opening Night Film & Gala Party ($100.00)
LALIFF, aimed at showcasing Latino perspectives through art will kick-off opening night with the Los Angeles premiere of the “ The Sentence ,” winner of the “Audience Award – U.S. Documentary” at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Drawing from hundreds of hours of footage, filmmaker Rudy Valdez shows the aftermath of his sister Cindy’s 15-year sentence for conspiracy charges related to crimes committed by her deceased ex-boyfriend—something known, in legal terms, as “the girlfriend problem.”
The Opening Night Gala Party will take place immediately following the film, and will highlight two incredible bands: The Mexican Standoff and Tropa Magica.
Date/Time: Wednesday, June 20th | 7:00 PM
