The documentary short, El Flaco, gets officially selected for Boston’s LGBT Film Festival Wicked Queer and will premiere at Boston, Massachusetts, this Sunday, April 9, 2017. El Flaco will screen under the Sex Work Shorts category in The Paramount Center at Emerson College. Producer and Director, Krisstian de Lara hopes to bring attention to El Flaco’s story especially now that the border between the United States and Mexico is making such negative news at an international level.
The Wicked Queer film festival, formally known as The Boston LGBT Film Festival, showcases documentaries, shorts, stories and talk series that spotlight the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community around the globe. This year’s 33rd annual festival will be proudly presented by the television network Showtime, film distribution company Wolfe, the media network Edge and Microsoft.
De Lara states during an interview for Kn2s Productions that, “El Flaco’s documentary doesn’t portray a criminal but instead a victim of a bigger picture. It shows that Mexico and the United States have an unbreakable connection and we need each other to combat poverty and human rights.”
El Flaco is a five minute documentary featuring a male prostitute who pays for police protection to be able to work in downtown streets of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, produced by Kn2s Productions.
