THE BOATMAN a Border Story with a Paranormal Twist8:54 PM
At the center of the story is the mysterious Miguel aka “El Maldito” (The Cursed One). Miguel, brilliantly embodied by award-winning actor Oscar Torre, is a loner with a reputation of being one of the few Coyote’s (human smuggler) who rarely fails navigating his people across the unpredictable river that divides the U.S. and Mexico.
Known as “El Maldito”, Miguel seems haunted by the dead and dying.
He comes upon them on desert roads; he hears their confessions and takes part in their dying wishes.
Along with Torre (Ladron Que Roba A Ladron, The Hangover III, Counterpunch), "The Boatman" also stars, singer-songwriter in her debut film, Noemi Dunbar, Yvonne DeLaRosa (Borderline, Longmire, Los Americans), Carlos Montilla (Jane The Virgin) and Rogelio T. Ramos (We’re Alive: Lockdown).
"The Boatman" opens on Dec. 16 and runs through the Dec. 23 at Arena Cinelounge, a modern cinema in a historic theater building that is known to showcase indie and hard-to-find films.
