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.

Edna Lee Figueroa received a New York Latin ACE Award from the Asociación de Cronistas de Espectáculos de Nueva York for her work in the Nitsy Grau-helmed award-winning feature film Medardo, which also won the New York Latin ACE Award for Best Opera Prima for Grau.

Figueroa and Medardo star-writer-producer Julio Ortega, shown at right, in a scene from the film, were also profiled about the ACE Awards win in the ANDES (Agencia Pública de Noticias del Ecuador y Suramérica) blog.
