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.

Kiki Meléndez, shown at right, was profiled in Indiewire where her film Journey of a Female Comic was highlighted. It was produced by Latin Hollywood Films in association with Lion's Kill Productions, written by Lyn McCullough and Meléndez and directed by Erick M. Crespo and Meléndez. The "documentary comedy" stars Meléndez and features appearances by Edward James Olmos, Esaí Morales, Nadine Velázquez, Lupe Ontiveros, María Conchita Alonso, Johnny Ray Rodríguez, Jacob Vargas, Guy Ecker and Susan Rybin. The film will be distributed to AMC Theaters in Los Angeles and San Diego on May 2, 2014, with other major markets to follow. To read the article, click here.
