Closing Night Performance by Mexican songstress Amandititita 

October 10, 2022 at LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes in Downtown Los Angeles

Los Angeles, CA. October 2022 – The 14th Annual Hola Mexico Film Festival presented by Toyota will close with the screening of the film “Enfermo Amor” (Love Sick) and an exciting musical performance by renowned Mexican cumbia star Amandititita.

The romantic comedy speaks about how loving another person isn’t always an easy task. This film follows nine different couples undergoing a variety of struggles to maintain their relationships afloat and who are testing the limits of their bond. The only common denominator is the complexity of the flawed human condition. 

Directed by  Marco Polo Constandse (La boda de Valentina & Casese Quien Pueda) and Rodrigo Nava, features a stellar cast of actors: Camila Sodi, Mónica Huarte, Andrés Palacios, Fernanda Castillo, Adriana Louvier, Maya Zapata and Juan Pablo Medina.

Watch trailer: 
The screening will take place on Monday October 10, 2022 at La Plaza de Cultura y Artes in Downtown Los Angeles and will be followed by a live performance by Amandititita. 

Amandititita is a Mexican cumbia singer-songwriter. She is the daughter of the late Mexican rock/folk icon Rodrigo Gonzalez. Amandititita has carved out a name for herself as a performer of what she called 'AnarCumbia', a style said to be entirely urban and a blend of rock, reggae, rap, and traditional Mexican cumbia.

“We are thrilled to close the festival with the cumbia sounds of Amandititita,” says Samuel Douek, festival founder.
