A young chonga in Miami stands up to the baddest girl gang at her high school, setting off a dangerous chain of events - all told with characters portrayed as talking feet, given personality with toenails, jewelry, tiny bandanas, etc. “Toe Hoes,” directed by Kat Toledo, is inventive and strange, a tour through the life of Yahaira, a 16 year old girl living with her grandma. When ‘the crazy girl crew’ at school starts some shit over a new girl in town, Yahaira comes to her defense and gets a new friend. But it leads to an after school incident at a juice shop sending Yahaira on a subconscious odyssey. The film is set apart by its bold concept and world-building via miniature props and sets, and colored in with vibrant characterizations and edgy humor (“I’m smart and I fuck.”) -KA.
