Join us for a virtual livestream Q&A on Friday, October 2 at 9:00 PM CST with Jose Luis Benavides (Director), Amanda Cervantes (Actor), and Ilene Palacios (Actor) of LULU EN EL JARDIN; and Jose Batista-Ayala (Director) and Frankie Allday (Actor) of THE CRUISING MONOLOGUES. Filmmaker Q&A conducted by filmmaker Tadeo Garcia.
Four individuals share their deeper than just sex connection to “cruising,” the act of walking, driving around town, or browsing “hook up” apps in search of a little romance, usually of the gay, anonymous, casual, one-time variety.
Told in several parts – from childhood to adulthood – LULU EN EL JARDÍN is about a queer son retracing his lesbian mother’s story across the city of Chicago through intimate conversations with her.
