Bodas de sangre

A wedding party assembles in Las Vegas wedding chapel for a bizarre theme wedding of sorts. They act out Lorca’s play about people trying to break free from the vicious cycle of a blood feud in front of television cameras, as though the ritual might help them break the cycle, as though this time the Bride and Groom might live happily every after. But things fall apart as blood and history run their course and the characters fall back into old habits. Adapted and directed by McFeely Sam Goodman.
