Director Vuk Lungulov-Klotz’s debut film, Mutt, is a poignant LGBTQIA+ story about Feña, played by Lío Mehiel, a young trans guy bustling through life in New York City, who is faced with an increasingly challenging day. In the span of 24 hours, Feña must navigate the challenges of reconnecting with his foreign father, straight ex-boyfriend, and 13-year-old half-sister while also facing the daily struggles that come with living in a society that struggles to understand his identity. The film premiered at Sundance Film Festival, where Lío Mehiel won the 2023 Special Jury Award for Acting.
