BRUJOS is a queer-of-color web series that follows four gay Latino grad students that are also witches as they try and survive the school semester and a witch hunt led by the wealthy, white, male and heteronormative descendants of the first New World colonizers. BRUJOS isn’t just about superficial representation, it’s an attempt at revolutionary entertainment that is sorely needed in this political moment.
BRUJOS was written by Ricardo Gamboa and is directed by Gamboa and Reshmi Hazra Rustebakke , produced in collaboration with Cinema Libertad and distributed by Open TV – beta.
Brown, queer and raised in Chicago’s working-class Southside communities, Gamboa wrote BRUJOS to center the lives of people of color and queer and non-normative people who are often absent in media representation.
All onstage discussion along with the episodes themselves will be translated live in American Sign Language.
