ABOUT THE FILM
Starring: Lorenza Izzo, Bryan Craig, Chrissie Fit, Simu Liu, Liza Weil & Steven Bauer
In 1960's San Francisco, bright and talented catholic school girl Celina Guerrera (ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD's Lorenza Izzo) survives a difficult home life by following the rules. That is until an indiscretion creates a series of devastating consequences. As Celina faces the compounded obstacles of being young and alone, she sets out to rise above the oppression of poverty and invest in a future that sets new precedents for the time. Inspired by real women and the Janis Joplin song of the same title, WOMEN IS LOSERS will world premiere at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival.
