Sin Nombre

Q: What’s the movie about?

A: A gang member trying to escape his fate and a young Honduran woman trying to reconnect with her estranged family in the United States, cross paths on the danger-ridden Central American illegal immigrant train to the border.

Q: Who’s in the movie?

A: Paulina Gaitan, Edgar Flores, Kristian Ferrer, Diana Garcia, Tenoch Huerta, Luis Fernando Pena, Hector Jimenez

Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?

A: PhotobucketGo! You will empathize with the joys and perils of being in a murderous gang, and then gasp your way closer and closer to the edge of your seat, as you watch to find out whether or not these two lost souls will be able to arrive alive to destination hope.

Q: Will this movie make me laugh?

A: I laughed 3 times during one of the gang shootouts. But I was the only one laughing. It was embarrassing.

Q: Will this movie make me cry?

A: It will definitely leave you feeling like you need to take a deep breath.

Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?

A: It won for Directing and Cinematography at Sundance, and was Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize. Not too shabby for a first feature film.

Q: How is the Acting?

A: Save one or two cast members, this group of unknowns has little to no acting experience prior to this project. You really can't tell.

Q: How is the Directing?

A: It is easy to see why this director's short film would have won the Student Academy Award. Remember the name Cary Fukunaga, because you're likely to see it on the big screen for years to come.

Q: How is the story/script?

A: After four years of research, riding the Central American train and interviewing Central American gang members and immigrants, it's no wonder there is fresh new insight into both the life of a gang member and the hazards of illegal immigration.

Q: Is there anything else worth mentioning about the movie?

A: This is my first green light of 2009! I'm so happy...

Q: Where can I see the trailer?
