Sal­vador dreams of be­com­ing a doc­tor af­ter trans­lat­ing for his Span­ish-speak­ing abuela at a crowded clinic with an un­car­ing physi­cian. In­spired by his own ex­pe­ri­ences as a young boy help­ing his El Sal­vado­rian grand­mother nav­i­gate the US health-care sys­tem, Juan J. Guerra’s in­sight­ful, bilin­gual ac­count high­lights the need for cul­tur­ally sen­si­tive med­i­cal prac­ti­tion­ers, in The Lit­tle Doc­tor: El doc­torcito. Notes of de­spair and hope shine through in the strik­ingly an­i­mated art­work from Vic­to­ria Castillo.
