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.

The film stars Will Smith, Kate Winslet, Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, Edward Norton, Jonah Hill, Michael Peña, Enrique Murciano, Naomie Harris, and Ann Dowd, and is scheduled for release in U.S. theaters on Friday, December 16, 2016.
