Cloud Tectonics

by José Rivera

August 8-21, 2018

 Cloud Tectonics is a humorous, time-bending love story, by Academy Award-nominated José Rivera. Celestina, a hitchhiker whose pregnancy is lasting over two years, and Aníbal, a baggage handler at LAX, meet in the rain for an unforgettable and life-altering encounter in the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. Sometimes our paths are meant to overlap and diverge simultaneously.
