2016, Gashouse Films, 73 min, USA, Dir: Daniel Maldonado

The place the characters of this involving drama call home is New York City, whose subways and multi-ethnic enclaves may seem disconnected but can inspire surprisingly meaningful encounters despite the communication barriers. Daniel Maldonado’s poetic feature debut is comprised of two interconnected stories; the first, inspired by true events, follows a young man with Asperger’s syndrome (Jeremy Ray Valdez) exploring New York’s underground labyrinth, while in the second, an Ecuadorian driver (Jesús Ochoa) offers a ride to a stranded Chinese mother (Angela Lin) desperate to get home to her sick child. Nominated for Best U.S. Latino Film at the 2017 Cinema Tropical Awards.
