(Dec 12-18) Pelo Malo (Bad Hair) Award-Winning drama from Venezuela – Presented by San Diego Latino Film Festival

Junior is nine years old and has stubbornly curly hair, or bad hair. He wants to have it straightened for his yearbook picture, like a fashionable pop singer with long ironed hair. This puts him at odds with his mother Marta who finds it increasingly difficult to tolerate Junior’s fixation with his looks.


“The final moments of Bad Hair are as fiercely emotive as Truffaut’s fabled still-shot ending for 400 Blows. This is grand cinema.” – Brandon Judell, CultureCatch | full review
