GRINGA is a bilingual dramedy short that follows an overworked millennial who is rushing to pack for a trip to see family in Havana. When her eccentric Abuelo drags her on a last-minute hunt for a rare car part, she confronts her own privilege in a race against the clock. GRINGA explores how a woman trapped between two worlds tells a universal story about family, priorities, and not playing into others’ superficial expectations. This Moving Picture Institute original features a diverse ensamble cast and filmmaking team and is inspired by the director/co-writer’s real life experiences.
