Description

San Francisco, late 60s. High-schooler Celina Guerrera is smart, savvy and hoping for a way out of her bleak neighborhood. When she gets pregnant by her Vietnam-veteran boyfriend and facing tragedy, Celina rolls up her sleeves… and fights.

Nothing’s easy, especially for women in the 1960s. Celina Guerrera (Lorenza Izzo) is ready to move on, but she’s pregnant by Mateo (Bryan Craig), who hasn’t got much going on. Beset by a tragedy, and college now a distant dream, Celina works multiple jobs, fighting off sexist men and a world that doesn’t value her as it should. Taking its name from a Janis Joplin song, and shattering the fourth wall often, Lissette Feliciano’s film will disturb you, anger you, and ultimately make you cheer for Celina. “Spirited, imaginative, moving, and uniquely charming, Women Is Losers is a real winner.” --Kristy Puchko, RogerEbert.com
