Our short film "Violetta" is an official selection of the Latino Film Market 2017, which will take place July 28 through July 30, 2017 at El Barrio's Artspace PS 109, 215 E 99th St in Manhattan, New York. "There will be live screenings of Latino independent films that would be recognized at a national and international level creating economic development in the United States and Latin American countries." – LFM
Check out a video I shot and edited while working at Big Think below. "The political climate of Donald Trump and Black Lives Matter, actor and writer John Leguizamo argues that giving minority actors the opportunity to tell minority stories will translate to change for the individual and bridge social divides. Leguizamo was promoting the movie 'The Infiltrator'." – BT
"In addition to screenings, LFM will host a series of panels, workshops, and lectures in acting and casting, writing, pre-production, production, art direction, camera and lighting, wardrobe, sound mixing, and hair and make-up. All open to the public. This event is in collaboration with La Casa de la Herencia Cultural Puertorriqueña, a 37-year old, nonprofit, cultural organization." – LFM
Our short film "Violetta" is about a young girl who is coming of age via her voyeuristic obsessions, which transport her out of a tragic home life. View the "Violetta" trailer below.
