We won the Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary!

Thank you for all the support you’ve given our project of resurrecting a long lost opera and making a funny documentary film about the adventure. We had a terrific series of hometown screenings at both the Chicago International Movies & Music Festival and also at the Chicago Latino Film Festival. Local audiences laughed, cried, and tapped their feet to the music.

Oh, and by the way, we won the Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary at the Chicago Latino Film Festival! Woohoo. Or as the film’s Associate Producer Mario Contreras would say, Orale!

So, what’s next?

Our next screening will be at the Chicago Caribbean Film Festival:

This Monday, June 12, 7PM
Oak Park Main Public Library, just off the Green Line (map)
834 Lake St, Oak Park, IL 60301
Veteran’s Room (2nd floor)
Free and open to the public

I’d love to see you at this Monday’s screening if you can make it! I’ll be doing a Q&A after the documentary. We’re in the process of submitting to more film festivals, yadda yadda yadda. Of course the movie will eventually be able to download as well, though not for a little while still.
