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.

HOLA member Mathia Vargas worked with acclaimed director and indie filmmaker Jim McKay (The Good Wife, Mr. Robot, The Wire) in his new feature film EN EL SÉPTIMO DÍA, which opens June 9th at the IFC Center and BAM Rose Cinemas.

““En El Séptimo Dia” (“On the Seventh Day”) follows a group of bicycle delivery guys, construction workers, dishwashers, deli workers, and cotton candy vendors, all of whom work six days a week and look forward to their seventh day — a Sunday spent on the soccer fields of Sunset Park.” - Indiewire

It features an all Latino main cast! Congratulations, Mathia! The HOLA family is very proud of you!
