Cariños, a serialized cinematic experience from visionary auteur Christopher Michael Roybal, examines who, how, and why people love. The film follows a group of New Mexicans throughout 2017 as they collide in unconventional and unexpected ways, all while trying both to uncover and to keep hidden secrets that could change their lives forever. Cariños is unique because there are two distinct versions of this experimental fictional drama. The first version played out over the course of 2017 and broke the film into 53 individual scenes, or episodes, that premiered weekly online until its conclusion on the last day of the year. The second version, premiering tonight, compiles all of the episodes into a single, unified feature film that asks viewers if there is actually any one right way to love. Cariños contains adult language and content, and may not be suitable for all audiences. Presented as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.
Christopher Michael Roybal will be present at the screening to discuss the film with the audience.
