JUANICAS

directed by Karina Garcia Casanova
Canada/Mexico, 2015, Spanish/English/French, 78 minutes

Saturday, April 9, 2016, 1:30 PM — Plaza Theatre, Upstairs

When Karina Garcia Casanova set out to film her brother, Juan, upon his return from their Mexican birthplace, she knew she wanted a feature debut anchored in more than home footage—but the paranoia and depression into which Juan falls casts a shadow she can't control. "Juanicas" is a transparent, autobiographical portrait of mental health, familial introspection, and the futility of taking one without the other. —Lucy Doughty
