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.

Elaine Del Valle, shown at right, has been quite busy as of late. She is producing the web talk program "Whine on the Porch" (created and hosted by Kristen Krohn), which should premiere sometime later this year. In addition, Del Valle is making her narrative short film debut as a director with the film Final Decision. Also written by Del Valle, the short stars Berto Colón; Elyn Jenkins; José Roldán, Jr.; Frank Messina; Ángel Ramírez; and Joey Grant. The film is scheduled to start production later this month.

Carlos Carrasco is starring in Sienna's Choice. The short film was written by Azucena Martínez and Elisa Rial (based on a story by Janel Smietana) and directed by Linda Palmer. It will make its debut film festival appearance in July at the Monroe Arts and Civic Center in Monroe, New York as part of the Hudson Valley International Film Festival. For more information, click here.

Jeannie Sol, shown at left, will be shooting the short film As You Like It (written and directed by Castillo Salinari) later this month in Florida. She is also working on the solo show In My Own Skin (written and directed by Andrés Chulisi Rodríguez), which will have performances in August at the world-famous Stonewall Inn (recently named a U.S. National Monument), located in Manhattan's West Village.

Gualterio Alomar, through the Organization for Culture of Hispanic Origins (OCHO), is presenting an evening of art, literature, film and Hispanic culture. The evening will feature writer Jonathan Marcantoni with special guests Johanna Tolentino and Nelson Antonio Denis, and a sneak preview of a new documentary. The event will take place Friday, September 30, 2016 at The Center, located in Manhattan's West Village. For more information, click here.
