From director Cristina Herrera Borquez, the powerful documentary No Dress Code Required tells a simple story about one Mexican couple’s desire to get married… and all of the roadblocks that stand in their way.
Victor and Fernando, a devoted, unassuming couple from Mexicali, Mexico, find themselves in the center of a legal firestorm over their desire to get married. Weighing all of their options, the pair opt to stay in their hometown of Mexicali and fight for their legal rights.
With the help of two committed attorneys, Victor and Fernando withstand a seemingly interminable series of bizarre hurdles and bureaucratic nitpicking with grace and dignity.
No Dress Code Required is a rallying cry for equality, a testament to the power of ordinary people to become agents of change, and above all, an unforgettable love story that touches the heart and stirs the conscience.
