HOMEBOUND – NYC Screening Monday, August 18, 2014 7:30 PM – 9:40 PM (AMC 34th Street)

Three years ago, Homebound movie director/actor Fanny Veliz decided to make a film that portrays American Latinos in a positive way, a movie that tells a Universal story anyone can relate to. As a mom, she wants her kids to grow up and see people that look like them on the big screen not just playing the thugs and illegals.  Instead, they can see latinos being represented as lawyers, doctors, teachers, etc. Media has an impact in the way the rest of the country perceives us and in the way our children perceive themselves. Fanny Veliz truly believes it is time to change the inaccuracate truths on popular culture.
 
Recently, a study came out stating how bad the situation is for Latinos in the media: Statistic shows just how bad Hollywood’s Latino problem is.
 
Another article came out on the NY Daily News mentioning the same issue: Hispanics net roles major Hollywood movies study.
 

Homebound is the story of Richard Lynn, a successful young man who returns to his small hometown, El Campo, Texas. He has to help his father Gilberto who’s ill with cancer, run the family business, a dilapidated bar. Richard Lynn, accidentally falls in love for the first time with Sofia, a Venezuelan immigrant who speaks very little English.

As Richard Lynn befriends Sofia’s son, and is reminded of the friendships and culture of his hometown, he learns more about his father’s illness, the truth about his mother’s passing and their plans for him when he inherits it all. His secret desire to burn down the bar, which he blames for his mother’s death, surfaces as he questions everything, his past, his future, and his understanding of family.

The film is heartwarming, with inspiring performances, unexpected twists and a passionate ending that will delight audiences around the world.

The award winning film HOMEBOUND will have a one night only New York City screening on:
Monday, August 18, 2014 7:30PM – 9:40PM
at AMC Loews 34th Street 14 & IMAX 
312 W 34th St, New York, NY, US, 10001 (map) 
$12.00 General

Homebound is the winner of Best Director at the Georgia Latino International Film Festival, and it has had successful screenings in Los Angeles, Chicago, Fresno, El Paso, Austin, Atlanta.

Actor, Enrique Castillo known as Montana from the Cult Classic “Blood in, Blood out,” leads a cast of talented American Latino actors in this heart warming tale of a young man returning home.

“Casas de Carton” Ali Primera

Que triste se oye la lluvia (How sad the rain sounds)
En los techos de cartón (In the cardboard roofs)
Que triste vive mi gente (How sad my people lives)
En las casas de cartón (In the cardboard houses)
Viene bajando el obrero (The worker comes down)
Casi arrastrando los pasos (Almost dragging his steps)
Por el peso del sufrir (For the weight of the suffering)
Mira que mucho sufrir (Look how much suffering)
Mira que pesa el sufrir (Look the suffering weighs)
Arriba! (Up!)
Deja la mujer preñada (Leave the pregnant woman)
Abajo esta la ciudad (The city is down there)
Y se pierde su maraña (It looses its tangle)
Oyes lo mismo que ayer (You hear the same thing as yesterday)
Es su vida sin mañana (It your life without a tomorrow)
Hay cae la lluvia (The rain falls)
Viene, viene el sufrimiento (Comes, the suffering comes)
Pero si la lluvia pasa (But if the rain passes)
Cuando pasa el sufrimiento? (When does the suffering leaves)
Cuando viene la esperanza? (When does hope come?)
Niños color de mi tierra (Children color of my earth)
Con sus mismas cicatricez (With their own scares)
Millonarios de lombricez (Millonaires of worms)
Por eso (That is why)
Que tristes viven los niños (How sad the children live)
En las casas de carton (In the cardboard houses)
Y alegres viven los perros (And the dogs live happy)
Casa del explotador (House of the exploiter)
Usted no lo va a creer (You’re not going to believe it)
Pero hay escuela de perros (There are school for dogs)
y le dan educación (They give them education)
para que no muerda a los diarios (So they don’t destroy the newspaper)
Pero al patron (But the Master)
Hace años, muchos años que esta mordiendo al obrero (Since long ago, for many years He’s being biting the worker)
Que triste se oye la lluvia (How sad the rain sounds)
En las casa de cartón (In the cardboard houses)
Que lejos pasa la esperanza (How far hope passes by)
En los techos de cartón (In the cardboard roofs)
