Feminist Film Featuring Cheech Marin at CSUS

California State University, Sacramento presents a free screening of the independent film "Luminarias" at noon, Wednesday, March 14 in the University Union Redwood Room.

"Luminarias," set in Los Angeles, is a romantic comedy about four Mexican American women dealing with romantic travails while working out their self-esteem problems. After divorces and fruitless relationships, these four professional women find themselves single once again and still looking for the right guy. They meet once a week at Luminarias, a club in East Los Angeles, to share, gossip and lament about men.

The film examines the contemporary Latina's struggle with identity, independence and prejudices in a comedic fashion. The cast includes Scott Bakula, Robert Beltran, Marta DuBois, Evelina Fernandez, Fidel Gomez, Sal Lopez, Seidy Lopez, Angela Moya, Lupe Ontiveros, Dyana Ortelli and Cheech Marin.
