"Lovingly put together...you will be enthralled."
"Las Marthas is so expertly told that by the end of the movie you're at the edge of your seat." The Current
Unlike any other, the annual debutante ball in Laredo, Texas is part of a lucrative month-long festival honoring George Washington's birthday.
Tracing the event's origins back to 1898, LAS MARTHAS works to unravel why a town like Laredo - with a population that is 98% Mexican - feels such affinity for America's Founding Father.
A beautifully drawn and sometimes humorous, coming of age portrait with a critical eye, LAS MARTHAS follows two young women as they navigate this complex tradition in a time of economic uncertainty and political tension over immigration and Border relations between the US and Mexico.
