HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to “gossip”. In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members or Friends of HOLA who are getting acting, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Sully Bonnelly, shown at right, was the subject of a blog in Lo que te perdiste (a Spanish-language section of Yahoo! OMG! blog). To read the article, which also mentions HOLA member Marisol Carrere (see below), click here.

Up Theater Company is presenting 4. A presentation of four one-act plays by four writers (Rosebud Ben-Oni, Chris Van Strander, Eddie Antar and Laura Fois Bosley, respectively), around common themes, the production is directed by Nancy Robillard and will have a June production at the Inwood Academy, located (natch) in the Inwood neighborhood of Manhattan. The production stars Ana Grosse, Mauricio Leyton and Laura Gómez. For more information, click here.

Gladys K. Nilsen
booked a lead role in the short film Memories (written and directed by Luz Ayala). The film has been recently screened at Brooklyn College
in New York. She will also appear on screen in "Brains on Trial" (PBS), where she worked alongside Alan Alda.

The film Día de los muertos (Cempasúchil), written and directed by Maricela Reyes, was recently screened at Brooklyn College. The film also earned its writer-director an award from New York Women in Film and Television (NYWIFT). The film stars Juan Villarreal, Marisol Carrere (see above), Denia Brache and Sandy Hernández (shown above, clockwise from top left). The actors were cast after the director submitted the casting notice to HOLA and the actors self-submitted or via referral.

The Matteo Ribaudo-helmed short film Ophilia (co-produced by Marlene Forté) will have its world premiere on Saturday, June 1, 2013 at the Dances With Films Festival, where it will screen at the Chinese 6 Theaters in the heart of Hollywood in Los Angeles.
