Bougainvillea

Queer coming of age drama with a hint of fantasy.

(In Development)

Marisol’s wedding is unsettled when Salomé shows up unexpectedly after years of their uncanny friendship being interrupted because of a mysterious love letter.

Written by Patricia Chica

"The title BOUGAINVILLEA came to me during meditation, as it’s the name of my favorite flower. It’s also a plant that serves as a metaphor for the relationship between Marisol and Salomé. Salomé will express it very well in the script: “The Bougainvillea is beautiful, yet deceiving at the same time. The colorful blossom covers hidden thorns. They’re high maintenance... if you want to own them... and the more you water them, the more they drown. You have to let them dry under the sunshine, but not too much either, just the right dose of care to keep them flourishing and alive.” - Patricia Chica
