SAN CHA’S ASCENSION will be a feature-length documentary following the creation of the opera, ASUNCIÓN.
Against this backdrop will be a profile of San Cha exploring her rich backstory as a first

Mexican-American fusing tradition with iconoclasm and her life leading up to the staging of this opera.

“Ranchera seems like the opposite of punk rock,” explains San Cha. “But for many brown queers, it’s part of

our heritage... why shouldn’t we be able to embrace that? I’ve always loved the romanticism. Besides,

what’s more ‘goth’ than rancheras, which say ‘without you, I bleed and die’...!” 

The film is currently seeking investors, funding, and principle crew members.
