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. Director, Krisstian de Lara speaks during an interview for Kn2s Productions about how crucial it is to bring border stories, such as El Flaco‘s, to the big screen,
Bringing El Flaco‘s story into the limelight is so important, especially now that the border between the United States and Mexico is making such negative news at the international level. This documentary portrays the real life of a person who is trying to make a living and, in addition, cutting through the town’s deadly judgmental society is nothing more than admirable.”
