REFUGIO was accepted in the NewFilmmakers Los Angeles Film Festival! This was a short film I starred in last year that sits deeply in my heart as it sheds light on immigration issues.
It will be screening (online of course) on Saturday, June 27th at 6:15pm PT. Followed by a live Q&A with the filmmakers at 8:00pm.
It will be screened as part of a collection of short narratives told from the perspective of the immigrant experience and those affected by it, as part of NFMLA’s first InFocus: Immigrant Stories. This block of short films serves as a reminder of both the diversity of experiences unique to immigrants, as well as some of the harsher realities.
Tickets are $10 for the 97 min block of films.Here’s a link for more info: https://www.seedandspark.com/festivals/nfmla-jun-2020
I’m honored to have worked with the team behind this project. They deserve every accolade in bringing this story to light. For me that is what I want to do with my acting and producing career, raising consciousness through art.
