The Bonobos by Amparo Garcia-Crow
Sunday, May 23rd @ 6:30pm
The State Theatre, 719 Congress Ave. (map)

Divorced couple Lorenzo and Antonia have been having an affair. When a cyber porn unit comes knocking on Lorenzo’s door during a tryst, the couple discovers that Tiffany, their seventeen-year-old daughter has been starring in and selling internet “instructive videos” falsely implicating Lorenzo as a child pornographer.  In the process of defending his innocence, the hypocrisies of sex in one family illuminates the “missing link” that might just bring them all back together again.
