La Serenata (The Serenade)

A Mexican-American boy learns about the tradition of serenading, and why demonstrating romantic affection proudly, publicly and through song is such a treasured Mexican custom. One day, the boy asks his parents if there is a song for a boy who loves a boy. The parents, initially surprised by the question and unsure of how to answer, must decide how to honor their son and reimagine a beloved tradition. Written by Ernesto Javier Martinez and directed by Adelina Anthony.
