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 just wrapped up work on the Alexandre Moors film Blue Caprice (starring Tim Blake Nelson and Isaiah Washington. In addition, the Sarah Fimm video "Everything Becomes Whole" (in which he appears) has been released. The video clip can be seen below.
