Holy Madonna


Martina is a young novice who is dedicated to assisting the priest Francisco in funeral masses. With the unexpected death of Afrodita, a charismatic and respected drag queen whose last wish was to be veiled with joy and party, her secret past within the Lgbtiq+ community reappears, which he must face. Between Vogue, an ex-girlfriend and her fear of coming out of the closet, she will understand that she does not have to fear love and living authentically.

Our Review

Stories are voices that accurately and sensitively portrayed experiences of the LGBTQ+ community . We have to understand and accept the rich variety and diversity of the people that make up our society. It’s valuable to our culture and development of the community. Holy Madonna is an attempt to tell one’s personal story rather than tackling the entire issue is truly an art of storytelling. Holy Madonna is a good watch in terms of cinematography and camera work, which is amazingly done. The editing for this movie is impeccably done.
