The Ruining Lorca Trilogy: Quinces de Sangre, Yrma, and La Tamalada de Bernarda Alba
The Ruining Lorca Trilogy: Quinces de Sangre, Yrma, and La Tamalada de Bernarda Alba. Federico Garcia Lorca was a queer Spaniard who survived a pandemic but lost his life to fascism. Director Rudy Ramirez and writers Victor Cazares (American (tele)Visions), Krysta Gonzales (Más Cara) and Jesus Valles ((Un)Documents) are four queer Mexicans hoping to do him one better. With that in mind, they're exploding his iconic "Rural Trilogy" into three comedies that revel in our tragedies, contradictions and survival.
