CRG Arts and Humanities Research Initiative’s Exploring Queer and Trans Migrant Narratives Series presents:

El Cato del Colibri screening and Q&A with filmmaker Marco Castro-Bojorquez

In an intimate and deeply personal documentary, immigrant Latino fathers across the  U.S. recount the impact of their children’s coming out. Through raw and heartfelt testimonies these families delve deeply into issues of immigration, prejudice, and isolation, while thoughtfully asking questions of their communities, culture, and even their religious beliefs. The result is a powerful lesson on solidarity and humility in a film that both heals and inspires.


El Canto del Colibri premiered at Frameline39 in June 2015 and played at over 30 international film festivals, including screenings in Ecuador, Mexico, Spain, and throughout the United States. Winner, among others, Best Documentary Audience Choice Awards at the CinHomo Muestra de Cine. LGBT Valladolid, Spain and Best Documentary by the Jury at Can [be] Gay: 3º Festival Internacional de Cine LGBTIQ de Canarias, Spain.
