Great news! Pocha directed by Michael Dwyer and screenplay by Kait McLaughlin will premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 14th at 6:30pm.
The film features several extraordinary actors beginning with Roberto Urbina, one of Colombia's finest young actors who is currently playing the Jesse Pinkman character in Metástasis, the Colombian adaptation of Breaking Bad, Maria Del Carmen Farias (Mexican Ariel Award nominee for El Sueño de Lu), Jorge Jimenez (director/actor of Hermoso Silencio, a beautifully crafted film), Jesse Garcia (best known for his indie performance in Quinceañera), and newcomer Veronica Sixtos. And yes I'm in it as well.
Hope you all can make it!
Pocha (aka Manifest Destiny)
After being deported from the U.S.A. for credit card fraud, Claudia (22) is forced to go to her estranged father’s cattle ranch in northern México. Struggling to adapt to family and a way of life she has never known, she partners with a local smuggler who promises to get her back to America if she helps him trespass on her family’s ranch. While both a slow burning thriller and classic western, POCHA interrogates current American moral quandaries through Claudia’s transformative journey between the dark places of two cultures.
