The New York gay & Lesbian Film Festival & The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Presents
"Savage Roses", a new, low-budget, urban movie that premieres on Wednesday, July 23rd at
4pm and 9:10pm
The 9:10 showing will be followed by a Q&A with the writer and lead actress.

Tough, gritty, and sensually enthralling, this cinematic slice of urban gang life explores
the oft over-looked world of young, street-smart Latinas. Toro, a tough lesbian gang
member, acclimates well to the group as they rob, steal, and hustle. The gang is
strong-both sexually and physically-holding sacred both loyalty and the money it takes to
Despite the closeness of her gang and sisters, Toro feels isolated. Secrets from her past
keep true friendships at bay and harden her already tough exterior. Yet Toro soon meets
Michelle, a young mother who moves in with her abusive and cheating boyfriend, residing
near where Toro spends time both keeping an eye on the neighborhood and trying to work
through her anger.

After discovering Michelle bruised and battered, Toro crosses the line of friendship by
protecting and defending Michelle-accelerating the relationship beyond mere friendship.
Yet their evolving relationship jeopardizes both their safety as the gang's suspicion is
raised concerning their closeness. Trying to find peace within herself and hoping to
eliminate the rage and hurt in her heart before it affects her budding relationship with
Michelle, Toro struggles to leave gang life and break the cycle of violence before it is
too late.
SAVAGE ROSES is a breakthrough film-an old-fashioned, lesbian love story, humorously and
poignantly told amidst the conflicts and moral ambiguity often found on the streets of New
York City. ..First shown at the NY Gay & Lesbian Film Festival!
