film synopsis

An engrossing portrait of a fierce love unbroken by the forces of bigotry and hate, Cristina Herrera Borquez's rousing debut documentary feature follows Víctor and Fernando, an unassuming Baja California couple who, in 2013, found themselves in the center of a social firestorm over their desire to get married. Weighing all their options, including having the ceremony performed in Mexico City where same-sex marriage was made legal in 2010, the pair opt to stay in their hometown of Mexicali and fight for their rights.

With the help of two committed attorneys, Víctor and Fernando withstand a seemingly interminable series of bizarre hurdles and bureaucratic nitpicking with grace and dignity, culminating in one of the most unexpected and emotional wedding ceremonies ever captured on film. Proving again that love trumps hate, 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.
