From the venue:

The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival will screen the North American premiere of Leona for their Young Professionals Night, presented by ACCESS. Making the transition into adulthood, a young woman from Mexico City finds herself torn between her Syrian-Jewish family and a forbidden love, in this delicate, melancholic romance. Ariela is an independently-minded mural artist living with her traditional family in a cloistered Jewish neighborhood. Under pressure to find an appropriate husband, a serendipitous encounter leads to a passionate courtship with Ivan (Christian Vazquez), a non-Jewish suitor who introducers her to a world of possibilities beyond her sheltered life. Audience members can look forward to a pre-film party at 6:30 p.m. and wraps up with a Q&A discussion with filmmaker, Isaac Cherem, and lead actress, Naian González Norvind.
