"Spark Arts Selects” with Director/Actor Lionel Desai
SUMMER SACRAMENT - 2017 - 63 minutes
During one fateful summer, Richie is forced to deal with his mom's deportation and prepare for his First Holy Communion as a Catholic while living with a caring adoptive family whose young son becomes Richie's closest friend and support. Set against the backdrop of a slowly evaporating Mission district, Summer Sacrament is a powerful piece of local, homegrown cinema that tackles the coming-of-age theme with both charm and gravitas. Director/actor Lionel Desai will be present for Q&A. Cast members may be present as well. General audience: appropriate for all ages.
