The LPB funded film Clara Como el Agua premiered today along with 4 films in 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.

The 10 minute film addresses the issues at the center of the Latino and Caribbean experience – the racial tension of mixed communities, the conflicts of broken families due to the emigration of parents and the clash of tradition and more modern beliefs. A coming-of-age story, Clara Como el Agua, also sheds light on effects of bullying
