Last year Patrícia Delgado’s short film The Hood was presented in the national competition at IndieLisboa. The Portuguese director, L.A. based, signs now her first feature film, a coming of age story of a young Latin student, Aleteia, who looks forward to pursuing her studies at the university. With a realistic style and attentive look, this is also a vision of the tense American political atmosphere at the moment, as well as the dissensions within the Hispanic community.
