"Mosquita y Mari" had its world premiere Sunday at the Sundance Film Festival to a packed house. The show was sold out online days before the premiere and it was a "smashing success," according to one of the film's representatives.

The film "Mosquita y Mari" explores the complexities of a blossoming friendship between two Chicana high schoolers in Los Angeles' Huntington Park as they navigate through life when they realize they see each other as more than just friends.

Director Aurora Guerrero says she's been inspired queer, women of color feminist writers, in particular Cherríe Moraga and Gloria Anzaldúa.
