"Vamanos" is a really provocative piece about a young Latina who is at odds with the mother of her late partner over the choice of outfits that the mom has made for her daughter's funeral. After a disturbing meeting with a family friend, the young lady gets together with her friends and decides to take matters in her own hands.
A nice dose of humor contrasted with the overarching theme of alienation in the Hispanic community for their LGBTQ members. Well worth checking out.
I've seen this film twice, and both times it resonated with me. You might even tear up a bit, as the emotions displayed are raw and powerful. Jessica Camacho does a fantastic job as the lead "Hope" and her costars are equally as good. Co-Writer Moira Morel is also a cinematographer who has a wonderful eye for film.
