Aurora Guerrero debuted her feature film 'Mosquita Y Mari' at Sundance 2012 and I had a chance to talk to her near the end of a hectic but exciting festival. She shared the secret of her $80,000 Kickstarter campaign success, and the importance of telling stories from the queer, Chicana and immigrant communities she belongs to.

'Mosquita Y Mari' tells the story of two Chicana high schoolers in Los Angeles who bond, struggle and chart their own paths in the face of parental sacrifice, immigration experiences and peer pressure.
