Gian Cassini (Dir), 98 minutes, México, Western New York Premiere
In this piece of reflexive nonfiction, filmmaker Gian Cassini investigates several generations of men in his family caught up in violence, including his father, who was a hitman in Tijuana. Through his queer lens, Cassini unpacks the deeply-rooted networks of machismo and toxic masculinity that informed his own life and perpetuated his family’s traumas, offering audiences an unprecedented look into the personal ramifications of Mexico’s failed War on Drugs.
