"Who's Afraid of Vagina Wolf?"
In an all female parody of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?," Anna will get the girl and make the film if it kills her!
Extremely personal, but equally universal, ‘Who’s Afraid of Vagina Wolf?’ explores a Cuban-American, lesbian's struggle to balance career, love, mother-daughter issues and her own internalized lesbophobia. In an indie film made by and about women of color, Anna Albelo unpacks what it means to be a lesbian Latina in the world fighting to make your story visible. The film enjoys a unique position in the marketplace of because it comes with a variety of built-in audiences: LGBT, Latina, and female moviegoers.

About the Production:
"Ever since I heard the expression, 'Glass Ceiling' I've found it a paradox. It's not a concrete ceiling or a steel ceiling or a marble one even. It's just glass.
We hear this expression so often to describe the reasons women and girls don't advance in this world but I know things can be different if we each take action.
Action makes change. Action launches a scene. Action makes a film." -- Anna Margarita Albelo
The film is currently in pre-production and will begin shooting in the fall.
