I Am a Director

I Am a Director

AFTER SPENDING SEVERAL years in Los Angeles, Carlos, a budding filmmaker, returns to his native Puerto Rico with plans to make a movie, Hollywood style. There are just a few small complications: he has no script, no money and no discernible talent. Yet along with his producer and only believer, Joa, Carlos is determined to make his dream a reality. This is a hilarious satire on the filmmaking process, by turns both savage and affectionate.
