Here’s an exclusive sneak peek to the LPB funded film produced by Fernanda Rossi, CLARA COMO EL AGUA. The 10 minute short will premiere on Monday, March 5th on the PBS Online Film Festival as part of the category ‘Growing Pains’. CLARA COMO EL AGUA explores the tales and half-truths that surround the origins of Clara, a light-skinned black girl with kinky, blond hair and gray eyes, who is incessantly teased by her dark-skinned peers; until she ventures into the magical waters of the bioluminescent bay to change her skin color and possibly herself.
