HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting and performance gigs. The names of HOLA members are in boldface.

José Roldán, Jr., shown at left, was cast in an educational video for Motion Inc. after the casting director spotted his profile on the HOLA online directory and called him in to audition. In addition, he is in pre-production for the short Infected. Written, directed and co-starring Roldán, the film will also star Jorge Álvarez and Jennifer Fernández.

J.F. Seary is performing some of her poetry at Club J'Adore in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood at a fundraiser for Sigma Lambda Upsilon LADYS (Leadership, Advancement, and Development of our Young Sisters) mentorship program. For more information on the program and the sorority itself, click here.

Vidal Silva Gil e-mailed us to let us know booked a trio of gigs. First, he closed out 2011 by acting in a promo commercial for Verizon. He then started 2012 off with a voiceover for José Cuervo and a role in a NYU student film.

Dennis Brito starred in the film The Ideal. Directed by Wes Tomasz Cieśla and written by Rivka Rappoport, the film also starred Iván Pérez and Kristen Brancaccio and had its NYC screening debut at Anthology Film Archives in Manhattan's East Village.

Caridad De La Luz (also known by her nom de poésie La Bruja) will have a concert in Mi Gente Café, located in the Castle Hill neighborhood of the Bronx. For more information, click here.
