Leona

An intimate, insightful, and moving film that tells the story of a young Jewish woman from Mexico City who finds herself torn between her family and her forbidden love. Ripe with all the drama and interpersonal conflicts of a Jane Austen novel, watching her negotiate the labyrinth of familial pressure, religious precedent, and her own burgeoning sentiment is both painful and beautiful – there are no easy choices to be made and the viewer travels back and forth with her as she struggles with her heart to take the best path.

In Spanish with English subtitles

2018. 95 minutes. Drama. NR.

“An absorbing drama about a young woman torn between her family and community on one side and her forbidden relationship, independence, and personal expression on the other.”

Gerri Miller - Jewish Journal

“MARVELOUS! A gripping journey into Mexico’s insular Syrian Jewish community… and a remarkable first effort from a team with enormous talent.”

Jordan Hoffman - The Times of Israel

“A thought-provoking work of art that tells an intimate and authentic story.”

Emma Loggins - Fanbolt
