GREENCARD WARRIORS’ GETS SECOND WEEK IN LOS ANGELES
After an exceptionally successful debut of GREENCARD WARRIORS in select theaters, the independent feature will run for a second week in Los Angeles. This gritty and realistic film earned its writer Miriam Kruishoop the Best Director award at LALIFF and rave reviews in major publications nationwide.
GREENCARD WARRIORS stars Manny Perez (Homeland), Angel Amaral (Crosstown) and Vivica A. Fox (Kill Bill) and includes outstanding performances by real life ex gang member Richard Cabral (The Counselor) and the exquisitely talented Paige Hurd (Hawaii Five-O). Clocking in at 91-minutes, the film is set against the backdrop of the American military intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan. It follows the story of 14-year-old Angel (Amaral), an undocumented Latino teen and his family, who struggle to find their place in American society. With the promise of naturalization papers, US Military recruiters present Angel’s father (Perez) with the opportunity for a brighter future for his family if they send their eldest son into the US Army. With his brother gone, Angel and his African American new love are vulnerable to the attention of a local street gang whilst the family is left to deal with the inevitable consequences of the choices they have made.
