B4B is an art film and intimate character study of Yoli—a charismatic Xicana lesbian making familia in a queer/trans people of color scene in Los Angeles. Yoli is an artist at heart, who, along with her best friend, Rani, makes do with a mundane job. One night she decides to pursue Daña, an alluring Puerto Rican woman. This romantic pursuit upends the seeming calmness of Yoli’s life, and she soon finds herself recreating her tumultuous past. Ultimately, Yoli must choose between getting caught in a familiar pattern of pain or facing the history that haunts her in order to learn to love “right.”

This film is one of the few lesbian of color feature-length productions that explores with complexity the subject of intimate partner violence. Through the use of puppetry, the film takes a novel aesthetic approach to expose Yoli’s past and invites viewers to question the liminal spaces between memory, imagination, and the subconscious.

This closed-captioned film contains content not suitable for people under 18. A Question and Answer session with filmmaker Adelina Anthony will follow the film screening. The event is free and open to the public.
