II - Film Screenings at the Concourse Plaza Multiplex Cinema

May 19th

Gun Hill Road (4pm) (88 Min)
By Rashaad Ernesto Green

The inspiration for the film festival came form Bronx Director Rashaad Ernesto Green and his great success with his first full length feature film, "Gun Hill Road". The movie will be shown for the first time ever to the Bronx Public as part of the film festival organized by Olympia Film Locations Inc. Please see the video and synopsis taken from the Sundance Film Festival web site. Please make sure to log on to secure your tickets today before theater capacity is reached. Seating is limited.

"After three years in prison, macho Enrique (Esai Morales) returns home to the Bronx and finds things changed. His wife, Angela (Judy Reyes), is distant, and his teenage son, Michael, has come out as Vanessa, a transgender woman. Unable to accept his child for who she is now, Enrique clings to his masculine ideals while Angela attempts to hold the family together by fiercely protecting Vanessa. Still under the watchful eye of his parole officer, Enrique must become the father he needs to be or, once again, risk losing his family and freedom.

The heart of Gun Hill Road lies in two places: a father’s inability to escape the vicious cycle of his life, and the richly drawn character of Michael/Vanessa (newcomer Harmony Santana is unforgettable). Writer/director Rashaad Ernesto Green’s first feature film is a complex family drama, told with gentle humor, sensitivity, and a deep understanding of the environment that defines its inhabitants."
