El Flaco premieres as an Official Selection of Wicked Queer, an LGBT Film Festival in Boston, Massachusetts, on Sunday, April 9, 2017. El Flaco will screen under the Sex Work Shorts category in The Paramount Center at Emerson College. It will be part of the efforts to spotlight the lives of sex workers that affect everyone, insiders and outsiders, fracturing the most basic human rights.
The Wicked Queer film festival, formally known as The Boston LGBT Film Festival, showcases documentaries, shorts, stories and talk series that spotlight the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community around the globe. This year’s 33rd annual festival will be proudly presented by the television network Showtime, film distribution company Wolfe, the media network Edge and Microsoft.
El Flaco is a documentary short that tells the story of a late-20s male prostitute that makes a living in the dark and gloomy streets of downtown Juarez, Mexico.
Krisstian states during an interview for Kn2s Productions that he is excited to bring El Flaco‘s story into the limelight especially now that the border between the United States and Mexico is making such negative news at the international level. He concludes,
The El Flaco’s documentary doesn’t portray a criminal but instead a victim of a bigger picture. It shows that Mexico and the United States have an unbreakable connection and we need each other to combat poverty and human rights.
