Watch and vote for Ivete Lucas’s Ex-Votos


PBS’s Online Film Festival is back, and this year’s line-up includes a short from A+L friend and collaborator Ivete Lucas. Here’s the description for Ex-Votos:

After experiencing a shootout in her neighborhood, Anayansi, a pregnant teenager, fears that she will lose her child. Hoping for a miracle, her mother takes her on a pilgrimage to the festival of Saint Francis. As their journey merges with thousands of travelers from across Mexico, they must face the reality of her condition and escape the confines of tradition if she is to survive.

You can watch the film here. You can also vote for the film, once a day. So watch a bunch of films and vote early and often. The festival runs until July 17th.
