Tomorrow, are number of screenings that will feature local filmmakers that includes this documentary here made by local filmmaker, Krisstian de Lara, its called El Chácharero which is the third installment in a trilogy of documentaries that showcase the difficult livelihoods of a select group of people in Ciudad Juarez. The filmmaker talked to me about what is like to be included in this year’s festival.” Krisstian adds,
It’s phenomenal for this second year to be part of this phenomenal festival and I’m excited to finally, aside from The Plaza Classic Film Festival, have another festival that support local filmmaking since there’s not enough and there are such great stories coming out of the border.
