About this Event
Join us for a special screening of the film Carajita! Immerse yourself in the captivating story of love, friendship, and self-discovery. Featuring striking cinematography and outstanding performances, Carajita (which means annoying child) explores the tenuous relationship that exists between race, class, and family.
Sarah, the pampered daughter of a corrupt oligarch whose family recently relocated to Las Terrenas, thinks of her Black Dominican nanny, Yarisa, as “part of the family.” The two have a “mother-daughter-like” relationship that transcends their social standing. That illusion is put to the test when Yarisa’s spirited daughter Mallory goes missing, challenging Sarah’s naïve beliefs.
Boasting intuitive storytelling and confident direction, Carajita plays like a psychological thriller, deriving oppressive tension from unspoken inequalities and the impunity of privilege.
Whether you are a film enthusiast or simply looking for a memorable evening, this event is perfect for you. Grab your friends and loved ones and join us for an evening filled with entertainment and emotion. Mark your calendars and get ready to be transported into the world of Carajita!
