JUANICAS is an intimate and bittersweet portrait of a Mexican immigrant family affected by mental illness. For over ten years, filmmaker Karina García Casanova has been documenting her complex relationship with her mother and brother, both of whom suffer from bipolar disorder. When her brother commits suicide, she attempts to make sense of this event and come to terms with her past.

JUANICAS was winner of the Jury and Audience Awards for Best Documentary Feature at the 19th Cine Las Americas International Film Festival.
