El Salvador and Central America represented at SXSW 2019 and we can’t even begin to tell you how exciting that was!!!
CACHADA, a Salvadoran docufilm by Marlén Viñayo, is making it’s world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival on March 10th. We’re excited to work with the film’s Executive Producer, André Guttfreund, to help promote this incredible accomplishment and ensure that all the screenings are sold out.
This is a huge accomplishment for the Central American Film Industry, especially that of El Salvador, however the film’s executive team continues to fundraise to ensure that this film reaches all the corners of the world in this film festival season. Contact us if you are interested in supporting this effort. (Media kits will be available soon)
Five Salvadoran women -poor, single mothers, street vendors- have decided to embark on an unlikely dream: they want to become theater actresses.
After forming their own company, they accept the challenge of putting on a play through which they’ll bring their cruel life stories to the stage. What began as an experiment has turned into the only opportunity to transform their lives, but will they be able to face their past and get over their fears, traumas and dark secrets?
Filmed over a year and a half, this observational documentary is witness to the process of creating their play, through which they’ll discover themselves as victims and victimizers in a cycle of multigenerational violence.
