Película in Pink series: Maria Full of Grace, October 5th

Maria, llena eres de gracia (Maria Full of Grace)

It's no wonder this 2004 Colombian film has been so widely viewed by international audiences: it's relevant, well-done, and thought-provoking. 17-year-old Maria (Catalina Sandino Moreno) works in a small, economically-depressed Columbian town, where she dethorns roses in a factory for a hard-handed boss who limits bathroom breaks for his workers. When she finds out she's pregnant, she accepts a lucrative opportunity to travel to America smuggling cocaine. An insightful view of drug trafficking from Maria's vantage point, Maria Full of Grace is an inspiring story of survival and determination.
