HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting and performance gigs. The names of HOLA members are in boldface.

J.W. Cortés had a screening this August of the film he wrote and directed, entitled Conscientious Objector. The film, which had Edwin Pagán as its cinematographer, starred Cortés as well as Giselle Forté, Mônica Steuer, Martín Chávez, Jorge Humberto Hoyos, Kutcha, Marisol Carrere, Gilbert Cruz, Jaime Santana and Kareem Saviñón. The film had its screening at (Le) Poisson Rouge in Manhattan's West Village. For more information on the film, click here.

Also at (Le) Poisson Rouge is Destinations, a musical with a book by Dawn Eaton and music and lyrics by R.S. Rodkin. Playing at this year's New York International Fringe Festival (fringeNYC) in August, the play is directed by Gregory Fletcher stars William J. Vila. For more information, click here.
