Things We Dare Not Do Cosas que no hacemos
With director Bruno Santamaría and producer Abril López Carrillo
In the small town of El Roblito, where wild horses gallop through the streets and children roam nearby mangrove forests, life appears idyllic. But 16-year-old Ñoño has a secret that runs counter to the local culture defined by machismo; Ñoño loves to dress in women’s clothes. In this gorgeously photographed snapshot of rural Mexico, cinematographer-turned-director Bruno Santamaría reveals repression, violence, and beauty in equal measures and the exquisite story of an individual who bravely defies the gender norms of their society.
