NALIP is thrilled to present a special feature of the work in progress film "La Granja" at the Latino Lens Filmmaker Showcase, October 18 at the Avalon Hollywood - "a powerful project, from a supremely talented filmmaker that exemplifies the creative force behind the NALIP's Latino Lens programming" said NALIP Executive Director Axel Caballero. "This is the power of our incubation program and the Latino Lens Filmmaker Showcase, featuring the work of talented professionals that are pushing the creative boundaries across media. We are also thrilled to specially highlight Puerto Rican creative talent in honoring legendary actor Luis Guzmán with the Latino Lens Legacy Award and featuring "La Granja" by Puerto Rican extraordinaire Angel Manuel Soto. Ours is a rich community of Latino creators from all backgrounds, this showcase represents the talent across the board". 

"I'm thrilled to be part of the Latino Lens Showcase and presenting my Opera Prima "La Granja" to all the attendees while celebrating the achievements of our colleague and talented Puerto Rican actor Luis Guzmán. It's an honor to be part of the NALIP family and I hope my film opens a dialogue on Puerto Rico and the impact of a failed system." -Angel Manuel Soto, "La Granga" Writer/Director
