HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip". In this sense, we use it to highlight 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.

Juan Villarreal, shown at left and also see below, starred opposite Diana Carolina Pou in the NYU film short El cantador de la luz (written and directed by Lorena Durán), which was filmed in New York City.
