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.

Loren Escandón and Mafer Rodríguez star as Margarita and Carlota in "Madres y comadres," a webnovela presented by Kmart. Take a look at an episode below (in Spanish and English with English subtitles). More webisodes can be seen here.

Francis Mateo and Carla Franchesca host "3 Minutos," a segment about New York life that airs on Dominican television on the program "Zona Joven de Color Vision." For more webisodes, click here.

Ziad Tayeh
and Yanelba Ferreira can be seen in "Back To Basics," a webseries directed by Cyril Mahé. You can see a webisode below (note there is strong language; some discretion is advised).

J.W. Cortés
wrote and directed 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. It has been accepted as an official selection of the Puerto Rican International Heritage Film Festival, scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 19, 2011 at the Poets Den Theater in Manhattan's El Barrio neighborhood. For more information on the film, click here. The trailer for the film is below.

Tony Chiroldes
booked a Spanish-language commercial for Publix Pharmacy (he appears on-camera and does the voiceover as well). In addition, a video of him singing "Suddenly Seymour" from the film Little Shop of Horrors with Doreen Montalvo was designated as "Video of the Day" on the website of The Metropolitan Room, a cabaret in New York's Flatiron District.
