Latinbeat Trailer: AninA


Anina Yatay Salas is a 10-year-old whose name spells trouble: those three palindromes in a row are a source of teasing at school. When a playground fight results in mysterious punishment, Anina learns to put her problems in perspective in this animated film. 78 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.

“Soderguit’s film is lively, witty, and full of heart.” —Carlos Aguilar, Indiewire
